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.
Is there a way to create a two column report where your data fills up one column on a page and then goes to the next column on the page. We are in the process of creating our campus phone book and in the back we have departmental listings that are two column pages.
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE COUNTER/I2 =
IF COUNTER GE 4 THEN 1 ELSE COUNTER + 1;
COMPUTE COLUMN_NUM/I2 = IF COUNTER EQ 1 THEN
(IF COLUMN_NUM GE 2 THEN 1 ELSE COLUMN_NUM + 1) ELSE COLUMN_NUM;
COMPUTE PAGE_BR/I2 = IF
(LAST COLUMN_NUM NE COLUMN_NUM) AND (LAST COLUMN_NUM EQ 2)
THEN PAGE_BR + 1 ELSE PAGE_BR;
BY CAR NOPRINT
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
ON TABLE HOLD AS H0 FORMAT ALPHA
DEFINE FILE H0 ROW_1/A20 =
IF COLUMN_NUM EQ 1 THEN CAR ELSE '';
IF COLUMN_NUM EQ 2 THEN CAR ELSE '';
TABLE FILE H0
MAX.ROW_1 MAX.ROW_2BY PAGE_BR
NOPRINT BY COUNTER NOPRINTON PAGE_BR PAGE-BREAK ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF END-RUN

You might want to check out the "Mailing Label" printing options. They are described in the "Creating Reports" manual, in the chapter on "Laying out the Report Page". You make each entry a "label" and then specify how to print them the way you want. There are special options you put in your stylesheet. You can set PAGEMATRIX=(2 N) for 2 columns and N (replaced by numbers of rows you want), and MATRIXORDER to VERTICAL to print down first, then the next column. The full syntax and other options for the "labels" are in the documentation.
