Need to run webfocus reports in a batch sequentially

I have webfocus reports which I run from a webpage. I need to run some reports in a batch in a certain sequence. However, I dont want to just call some batch every time, I need it to be from a webpage so that I can choose the values for certain variables for the reports. If anyone knows how to do this please email me elliot.siegel@juliusbaer.com

thanks,
eli siegel

Why not just create a fex that calls the others and explicitly pass it the parameters.

EX FEX1 parm=val,parm=val ...
EX FEX2 parm=val,parm=val ...
EX FEX3 parm=val,parm=val ...

i have found that i need a blank in front of the EX command, in order for the called fex to take the parms.
You could also:
-SET &PARM1 etc...
-INCLUDE FEX1
-RUN
-SET &PARM2 etc..
-INCLUDE FEX2
just as long as no statement labels are the same in both fexes, otherwise bedlam ensues; EX is self-contained; INCLUDE is not;
