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.
If something is not working for you, I'd suggest that you post your code (just the relevant pieces) for us to take a look. Better yet, try and replicate the issue using a TABLE FILE CAR statement and post it here.
Just a question, are you declaring the "control" field in a COMPUTE or DEFINE statement? If DEFINE, make sure to add the field to your TABLE FILE request using NOPRINT.
Now, try also to declare your control field using an alpha type instead of numbers, the reason being that if you declare it in a DEFINE but you're using a SUM verb, your field will be aggregated and therefore your WHEN=ctrl EQ 0 clause may never be true.
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE CONDITION1/A10 =
IF COUNTRY EQ 'JAPAN' THEN '1'
ELSE IF MODEL EQ 'TR7' THEN '2'
ELSE '3'; NOPRINT
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=DATA,COLUMN=P1,FOCEXEC=JOE,WHEN=CONDITION1 EQ '1', $
TYPE=DATA,COLUMN=P1,FOCEXEC=FRANK,WHEN=CONDITION1 EQ '2', $
