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.

I've created a dynamic distribution list, and have successfully implemented it to burst the associated report (format HTML, to be included as an inline email message.) If there are entries in the dynamic distribution list for which there are not matching report entries to be burst, then the ReportCaster job creates an error listing the values that have no report. Is there a way to avoid these error messages?

Thanks for your help.

Joni,

I had the same problem and the solution I came up with was to include the selection logic from the report into the dynamic distribution list program. That will guarantee that the list will contain entries only for those who are in the report.

RSquared: I just created a second ReportCaster job which creates a second copy of the same report, but which does not burst; it is sent to an email address without the dynamic distribution list. Thank you for your reply.

RSquared,

Great solution to avoid the 'errors'! This we can implement in some of our ReportCaster processes.

Thank you for sharing with us.
