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.

Please help me figure out a way to display D14 JPY and D14.2 currency in the same field. Thanks!

Hi Welcome to the forum,

You can have a second field with the format desired and apply it to the display field.

e.g.
DEFINE FILE CAR
CURR/A8 = IF COUNTRY EQ 'JAPAN' THEN 'D15:Y' ELSE 'D15M';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT DEALER_COST/CURR
BY COUNTRY
END

Thanks so much for your response! I tried this method earlier and I keep getting a FOC1130 format conversion error for D14.Y and D14M
I only have access with InfoAssist so I am creating a define field with CURR/A8 and then defining the DRAWAMT D14.2 field as DRAWAMT/CURR....resulting in the foc1130 errors. Thanks again!
