About Predefined Queries
Your organization can provide predefined queries (PDQs). These predefined queries already have their criteria established and are found in the Queries drop-down list.
For example, if you are located in the western United States and always work with accounts located in California, the Queries drop-down list may contain a PDQ called CA Accounts that finds all the accounts in California. Every time you want to see only the California accounts, you do not have to create a new query. You can simply select the predefined CA Accounts query from the Queries drop-down list. An example of the Queries drop-down list is shown in Figure 42.
You cannot change predefined queries created by your organization.
When you execute a predefined query, the query always runs against all the data in the current screen. Even if you have run a query to narrow the data set, the predefined query always uses all data within the screen, not just the data shown in a list.
