Can WebFocus produce plain, formatted text reports? Like create a text file, 80 columns wide, formatted nicely?
This will give you a report that looked like it came from a 3270 screen.
TABLE FILE ...
ON TABLE SET ONLINE-FMT STANDARD
ON TABLE SET WIDTH nn
ON TABLE SET PANEL nn
Where nn is some number ... 80 in your case.
Hope this helps
but my client wants these reports to be text reports i.e. in a .txt or .rtf or .doc files
Try WP or DOC formats:
Or HOLD FORMAT ALPHA
Thanks Mikel and WFUser,
Now I have another question? How will I use these formats as mine is a compound report.
Assuming it is an HTML report and you want to embed the text, just this.
HOLD AS TXTTEST FORMAT ALPHA
That html file would have a !IBI.FIL.TXTTEST;
If you mean a formatted report that has text and data mixed, i.e. a letter with imbedded data, then you could create the text of the letter as a heading in a FOCUS report and use
