ReportCaster API to cancel a particular instance of schedule
Silver Member
Hi All,
Is there any API provided by ReportCaster to cancel a particular instance of the schedule. Say i have submitted a request to run from Apr 20th to Apr 25th. Is there any way can i set that the schedule instance should not run only on Apr 22nd.

Please advice.

a simple flexible way to accomplish this sort of situation would be to use a preprocessing fex. You can set up all sorts of date-based or time-based conditions, and you can use the regular RC tool to include that pre-processing fex.
something like this:
-IF &YYMD NE 20070422 GOTO end.thisfex ;

where the double & variable kill_rpc is a system variable that will stop the processing of that specific task in your schedule, and go on to the next task in your schedule (if there is one)
