The subject and the body of this post seem to be at odds with each other.

What exactly do you need?

A) run a report from windows scheduler?
B) run a windows scheduler from a report?

Please, provide more information.

I suggest you contact your IBI rep or open a case on http://techsupport.ibi.com

Can you describe what this ETL process handle?

You might be able to handle it using WebFOCUS and some skilled WF coder to code your new ETL fex.



Good luck!

If you can run it from the OS command line then, you can call it from WebFOCUS with an OS command call.

It can be run from the command line. You can launch the scheduler with either "taskschd.msc" or "control schedtasks".

But I could not get it to work from within WebFOCUS.

SET &ECHO=ALL;

CMD F:\KickOff\OpenDoc.bat
-END

-RUN

-EXIT

I tried running a batch file. It didn't give any error but notepad didn't open either.

OpenDoc.bat was to open a notepad file.

Are you running your fex on your local machine or on a server ?

If its on a server, then the call is on the server and you will not see any gui program show up.

I actually ran it on the server, and could notice a new task in task manager every time I ran this.

But I still don't get the notepad window to come up.

There is also a chance that the server is running under a different login than the one you are using.
