As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at email@example.com and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
I think the file you want to reference is etlstats. The master file exists in the \ibi\srv81\home\catalog directory. The actual focus database file are located in the \ibi\srv81\dm\catalog directory. If the data isn't in there, there is also a etllog master and database located in the same places.
Thank you for using Focal Point!

Add the DM as a remote server and run the following:
TABLE FILE _EDAHOME/CATALOG/SYSAPPS
PRINT FDATE FTIME
WHERE APPNAME EQ 'baseapp';
WHERE FNAME EQ 'new_file';
WHERE FEXT EQ 'mas';
ON TABLE PCHOLD AS FNAMEOUT
The &FDATE is the date the file was created, and &FTIME is the time of day.
