I'm trying to copy a file from one location to another run a Fex on the client side.

example:
DOS cp '/ibi_apps/ibi_html/franktest.txt' 'frankB.txt'
I receive file not found.

Thank

Frank

the File location doesn't appear to be correct. I would locate the file on the drive and then use the full path of the file instead of a relative path. chances are that you aren't in the correct directory by default.

Also '/ibi_apps/ibi_html/' appears to be the web location. Your reporting server and web client are usually on 2 separate servers. If you are trying to locate a file on your web server, you need to make sure that you have the drives mapped properly on the reporting server to the web server. And then make sure that you are using the fully qualified path. ie, d:\[my wf install]\ibi\WebFOCUS80\apps\baseapp\franktest.txt

First of all Welcome to Focal Point! You will find this forum a great place to get answers to your development questions...

With WebFOCUS 8 all the client components are stored in a database repository so a commmand prompt copy will not work either. You will need to copy them using copy and paste from App Studio.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Chuck,

If this is a part of a procedure, don't forget that he can always filedef it to the Reporting server then use the DOS command to copy it to a valid location.
