How Generic Inquiries Can Work For You:

Generic Inquiries in Acumatica allows you to take raw data and present it for reporting in a way that it can be analyzed. They can be used in dashboards, made available to BI tools, and offer drill-down capabilities for even more detailed analysis.

The Generic Inquiry writer is a reporting tool that can access any data in Acumatica—including data stored in customized fields—and publish it, export to Excel, or format it for OData. The OData formatting option exposes the data in the Open Data Format supported by business intelligence tools like Microsoft Power BI.

Generic Inquiries require no prior coding knowledge, just select the data you need and Acumatica will walk you through the process. Generic Inquiries can be reused and modified for a variety of purposes.
