Using PowerBuilder's or Infomaker's Query Painter in my applicatoin

I am at the point in my application where I would like to allow my users
to create customized queries, and possibly reports.  I have figured out
how to use syntaxfromsql to convert sql to the special datawindow code,
and this works find for me.  But some of my users arn't as gifted in the
sql department.  So now I wish I had a nice GUI query builder.  My question
is; Is the query painter, and maybe even the datawindow painter accessable
from Powerbuilder script kind of like an activeX?  Or an object that I 
can drop into a window.  I think I am to the point that I could recreate
this interface, but I just don't want to have to reinvent the wheel.
Any help on this or suggection on how to give my users an easy query 
building interface
would be appreciated.

I can not understand the problem. I think you answered your own question
when you said
you have Infomaker at your disposal. I would let them install it and move on
to other issues.

Yes, I could use Infomaker as a separate program, infact my users are already
using Access, which I would like to change.  What I want to do is store the
query that they create and have the option for them to add it to the list of
caned reports that aready exist.   I don't really want all of Infomaker, I
really only want its painters.  Also I am trying to limit the number of
applications that my users have to load inorder to use my application.  Already
they have to install the ASA client, and an ODBC update.  I have placed all of
my DLLs and EXEs along with all of the shared Powerbuilder DLL on a shared
drive.  I was hoping the query interface would be availabe though a library.

You can install IM without the update capabilities, so all they have then is
the query and report painters.

What's useful and what's fluff?
I've started reading ASP.Net Unleashed and the first chapter deals w/ ASP.Net Controls (e.g.: button, label, input, etc). As I read, it got me wondering about where to best focus my attention during my migration to ASP.Net. One of the things I've experienced over the years is that development languages, especially those tied to any visual RAD interface, tend to include a bunch of "neato" type features and controls that aren't used in day to day development. Most of the time, its because these "features" are actually quite constraining and add little to no value. I'm...

What's using each CPU
Hi, I have a NW65SP7 server running with a single quad core processor, and 8GB of RAM. If I go into NRM and choose "Profiling and Debug Information", and click on "Execution Profiling by NLM", the list is empty? I was guessing this would show me which threads or processes are using which CPU's. I can see in the health monitor and then clicking on each of the 4 CPU's that they are all being used, but I was curious what NLM's are using which and perhaps an average usage stat. Is there a simple way to accomplish this? Also if I go to "View...

Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?
I don't want to start anything (honestly)! Just want to ask a simple question. Does the Security Now podcast belong to Steve Gibson or Leo Laporte? Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo. But especially in the past few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of a sentence that I want to hear the rest of. I consider this very rude of Leo. Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something. It...

411 it's pconsole, 51 it's NWPMW32, 65 it's ???
I like to give some of my users controll over their print jobs. In Netware 3.x to 4.x it was pconsole. In Netware 5.x it was NWPMW32. I don't seem to be able to find the same type of utility for Netware 6.5? We don't like to give user access to nwadmin and the NWPMW32 I copied from my 51 server (TID 10075273) to the 65 server won't display the jobs.
