I'm experimenting with a query to ensure designers have filled in mandatory model attributes. The idea is to point the query at a group, get a list of models within that group or its subgroups, and identify which ones have left any mandatory attribute blank. So, I designed a simple hierarchical query on group and model


and defined a reasonably straightforward spreadsheet template on Models and their attributes


with Model defined as =QUERY_ITEM("6f0ba47c-97f2-4e2a-be94-b5628c79dc96";TRUE;TRUE) and expected to get a vertical list of models and their attributes. Instead, I get a separate list of repeated Model+attributes columns, apparently one for each level of nesting of Groups (Model (1) next, then Model (2)... and so on depending on nesting depth).


I assume something about the Group hierarchy doesn't play nice with the spreadsheet template, but how? When would I like to repeat objects horizontally, and is there any way of avoiding it?

I wonder what use case drives that strange design: it rather undercuts a lot of uses queries would otherwise have. Thanks.

In the upcomming April release it is going to be changed. If you will not put the recursive node into the template sheet, then the results are going to be placed horizontally. E.g. in your case as you did not put the group node to the sheet - all the models will be placed into one column, not multiple ones.
