Is there any way to paramartize the IBFS: reference for includes (et al)... The IBFS reference seems to be the requirement for referencing an object in the contents area (vs on the data server)
When I try to parametrize it, like this: -SET &LOC = 'TEST'; -INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/&LOC/fs_properties.fex
I get this error: Names cannot contain any of the following characteres: Space&*()|:;",?/"
The challenge is that as we promote code from one diretory to another (in the contents area)..we have to remember to go in and physically change that all the directory reference (in this case TEST) for the -INCLUDES/HTMLFORMS etc.
I know I would then have to figure out a way to set the &LOC so it knows from where the code is running..but I believe the SE said that is possible in the profile execution..so I would have a value knowing the relative run area.
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance WmThis message has been edited. Last edited by: W Kassebaum,
