Ad-Hoc Queries

All Glossary Terms

An ad-hoc query is a single-use query generally used to answer “on-the-fly” business questions for which there are no pre-written queries or standard procedures. Ad-hoc queries usually serve a single-use purpose and are not generally stored as procedures to be run again in the future.
