Focal Point Banner

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.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Custom Headings when Drilling Down
let's say we have a drill down type report and in the first column there are 2 entries
- online sales
- off line sales

the next column has regions
- north
- east
- south
- west

If I click on "south" in the online category, the result shows the data from south for online, but the screen gives no reminder that it represents only online sales (vs. offline)

I did some research both here and in the manuals but have not figured out how to modify the headers or add a new header. It is a plain OLAP enabled report listing which fields should be drill down.

hints, tips, chapter numbers, etc, welcome and appreciated

thank you

You could try using fieldname spot markers in the headings or amper variables.

Make sure you are passing "BOTH" in your drill.

Let's say Online/Offline are N1, AREA is N2, and, N2 is the drill:

     FOCEXEC=app/program.fex(COL1=N1 AREA=N2),

Hope this helps...
