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.

[SOLVED] New record from SYSTABLE

Hi Folks,
My problem is that I need to show some zero records for a few labels. Its hard to describe but its stuff we've all come across...
 
DAY     COUNT
Monday     10
Tuesday    22
Friday     38

But I would also like to show the other days with zero records/counts:
  
DAY     COUNT
Monday     10
Tuesday    22
Wednesday   0
Thursday    0
Friday     38

Now, I've inherited code where the coder is doing exactly this. He is making a hold file with the 0 data, and appended it to another table (the table with the non-zero data) via the MORE command. I've tried to use that code as a template, but I'm having problems. I am getting FOC1175 (NO REFERENCE TO FIELD DATA) when I try to create the zero record. This is the code:
  
TABLEF FILE SYSTABLE
SUM	
	COMPUTE TESTME/I1 = 0;
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 1
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE HOLD AS ZERO1
END

Any tips?

I also wanted to add that this dude seems to have went this way but he never posted the code.

Oh... I'm using SQL Server

I think this should work for you:
 
SET HOLDLIST=PRINTONLY
TABLEF FILE SYSTABLE
SUM NAME NOPRINT
    COMPUTE TESTME/I1 = 0;
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 1
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE HOLD AS ZERO1
END

As a possible alternative, when you are a reporting a set of logical and unchanging categories (like days of the week), you may consider skipping the blank data generation and simply defining your rows or columns explicity:

 TABLE FILE CAR
SUM CNT.SEATS
BY SEATS ROWS 1 OVER 2 OVER 3 OVER 4 OVER 5 OVER 6 OVER 7
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
END 


This might be a more elegant solution in some circumstances - useless in others. Best of luck!
