I have two application folders appfolder1 and appfolder2. In these two folders are two fex files fexa.fex and fexb.fex. fexa.fex has a drilldown into fexb.fex and appfolder1 is higher in the APP PATH then appfolder2.
When I create a web page to run fexa.fex it will always run the fex in appfolder1. How can I change this so it will run fexa.fex in appfolder2 without permanently changing the APP PATH before running the report. Also how can I tell the drilldown which fexb.fex to run? Because the drilldown will always pick the fex in appfolder1.
This would be easy if I was doing it in the MRE but I'm not. Also I'm running WebFOCUS 5.2.6 on Sun Solaris.
How do you decide whether it should be foldera or folderb? Does the user specify something in the launch page?
You could execute a procedure that has APP PATH settings in it based on a variable that was set. Then EX fexa.
APP PATH &APPFLDR PREPEND
I think that should work.
Is there a specific reason why these are not uniquely named? Is this a test vs. Prod situation? Also, where do you specify the APP PATH in the edasprof? or in a user prof?
In the drill down, you can specify a new app folder to add to the current APP PATH by using the IBIAPP_app parameter. See below.
TABLE FILE CAR
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
This is for a prod and dev reporting environment.
