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.

Hi All,

So... I know I've done this before, but something isn't working right now. We have a table that we bring into a synonym (a synonym with only one table in it, there's a special name for synonyms that reference only a single table right?). Anyhow, this table now has a new field that I need.

In AppStudio I have tried to sample the data. More specifically, I right click the mas file and select Refresh Synonym and I get a positive message back. When I sample the data right after, that field is missing. So that's weird.

If I open the synonym in AppStudio, the new field is there. And if I sample the data there the field does appear. So that's good.

In a fex file, when I try to access that field I get an error message saying that the field I'm trying to access does not exist. So that's not right.

In Reporting Server Console, if I navigate to that synonym and I sample the data, that field shows up. So that's good.

I've tried hitting Save (when possible) in the various interfaces above, but no dice.

I've also tried rebooting my machine (my machine gets really laggy if I keep App Studio on for a long time), but I still can'tt see that field in the fex.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Any tips on how I can use this new field in my fex?

In the past I've had to modify the mas manually, but I'm reluctant to do that. I feel I'll introduce other issues.

Thanks all!

From your procedure, run WHENCE synonymname MASTER to ensure that there isn't another copy in your APP PATH somewhere.

It is possible that this master file also exist in another folder that have precedence (due to the Application Path) to the one that you look at.

Try this where the file is defined (exist). That will gives you the first location of the file:
WHENCE <your file name> MASTER

Thanks folks, that was it. A duplicate synonym with the same name. I inherited this environment.
