When using DB Manager, and the SQL Windows,
When using a 'WITH' in a SQL query the result rows are properly shown and everything is fine.
But when trying to use this result to create a new layer it silently doesn't work.

I tried an equivalent SQL query without 'WITH' and it worked. I of course tried the 'WITH' query in PgAdmin it works well.

  • OS version deleted (32 Vista)
  • Operating System deleted (Windows)
  • Target version deleted (Version 1.8.0)
  • Category changed from DB Manager to Data Provider

That behavior depends on the provider, there's a check that allows SELECT queries only.
Removing that check was discussed few weeks ago on the developer ML, see http://osgeo-org.1560.n6.nabble.com/Postgres-provider-checks-queries-and-refuses-CTE-td4987347.html
