Is there a way to get the REPORTID variable. When you submit a schedule it give you the JOB ID like Jaac052e4j27a7j4749ja85cj40e13cb8502d How can I capture this value into an ampa variable.

I will ultimately use that variable to query the botlib table to get the version # for the schedule

I suggest creating a focexec with just this one command:
-? &

Then schedule and run it via ReportCaster. Check the job log to see what amper variables are available.

Or go to the Task tab and pass it as a job parameter? Although the previously provided suggestions are probably what you are looking for.

Also, as suggested by Waz, please update your signature. This will help us help you in the future since the product is changing with each new release.
