Can WebFocus produce plain, formatted text reports? Like create a text file, 80 columns wide, formatted nicely?

Thanks,

Vipul

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
END

Where nn is some number ... 80 in your case.

Hope this helps

Try WP or DOC formats:

  • ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT WP
  • ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT DOC

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
END
-RUN
-HTMLFORM filename

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
