It would be great if we could design our query in excel and have the plugin check the design for errors to create blocks.  Creating report blocks would become much faster.  Given the recent enhancements to wizard i would anticipate this to be a difficult task.  Let me know.

Hi Michael - are you suggesting something like SQL capabilities in a cell that RB could interpret? Let me know!

Hi Jenn...

I am not sure if you are referring to writing actual SQL queries or something else - but I guess it would be similar.  See below for an example input to initiate a report block.  You could either VBA it, or just have it in cells (i think cells would be better for the audience).
