Hi Haneef, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion components. 

I cannot use query designer , its grayed out as in the attachment. 
As of now we don’t have support to design queries using QueryDesigner for Oracle data source type and we have already added it to our feature request list. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming release.

The mentioned error raised due to the query parameter syntax. In your attached files the query parameter used with @ prefix letter, but oracle query parameter must have a : (colon) prefix (eg: select * UGAPP_MASTER where APPLICATION_ID=:APPID). Please refer the below forum discussion for more details on this.

Dear Sir, 
Thanks for the quick support.

# As you said i have tried with :APP_ID , The moment I press OK its asking me for Define query parameters. Whatever I enter , it says Index was out of range. Must be non negative and less than the size of collection. Parameter name : index

Hoerver I was able to solve only by editing the rdl file and adding below parameters manually below select statements.
          <QueryParameter Name="APPID">

Is there any specific syntax for define query parameters.  

My issue is resolved , however it may help out those oracle users who facing similar issue.

Thanks for the great product and great support.
