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.
I have a report that is meant to be targeted to a frame. When I set &WFFMT to HTML or EXCEL the report correctly goes to the frame. When I set it to PDF it incorrrectly opens a new window. Another coworker PDF correctly opens in the frame. Has anyone had this experience?This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Emily McAllister>,

The web server has very little - possible no - control on how PDFs are handled on the client side.
The web page can make suggestions (in this frame or new page) but it's up to the PDF plugin. The plugin can be browser or OS specific in it behaviour and different versions of the plugin or browser may show different results.
As Francis suggests, check you settings (if you are using Acrobat Reader) or try one of the other pdf readers available (if your company policy allows this). Foxit Reader is free (and fast) for windows and xpdf works well in Unix/Linux
WebFOCUS 8.2.03 (8.2.06 in testing)
