Hi Mike,

PB datawindow does NOT support CTE. We'll transfer this enhancement to our product team for consideration. 

Regards,
Ken

to be clear I am not asking for a work around.,  i am asking for datawindows to support this directly.

   standard sql should work in a datawindow.   i am asking for the datawindow to work with current sql standards
