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.

Using the Compound Layout Report syntax with components and XLSX output, each component is put in a separate XL sheet.
Is there a way to have all the components in the same sheet?

I would have thought that the standard syntax to add a report to the end of another report (Can't remember off the top of my head) would do what you want.

use: NOBREAK

in the first report:
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX OPEN NOBREAK
END

2nd report:
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX NOBREAK
END

last report:
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX CLOSE
END

True, but... this syntax is on the way out... and the newer syntax doesn't seem to offer this functionality.
Maybe Chuck has an insight?

About the new syntax: it offers the possibility to refer to an existing procedure, which is a big improvement,in parallel to creating HTML pages where one can have on one page reports, graphs etc...

Its been 5 years or so, but I'm sure it can be done, as I think I've done it.

All comes down to the compound layout syntax.

You can attach a report to the end of another report.

The syntax is probably hiding under a defunct manual...

Better not be on the way out, I have several reports that have been running for years with this syntax.

I'm sorry I don't have any additional insight on this. Compound reports have been around a while and I doubt they would radically change it because of John's concern. Techsupport is your best bet to find out.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
