[NFR SHARING SOLVED] InfoAssist 'IN FILE' command (Work Around)

Is it possible to use the 'IN FILE' command from within InfoAssist?
If so, how? In 8204?
If not, When do we think it will be available?

Here's a crazy thought: how about a method to Copy&Paste a list in to the Filter?

Or, is this to be added another NFR / Things that App Studio can do but IA cannot?

I think (not sure) you can use 'in list' for the operator


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thanks Chuck,

While

It requires the user to hand type, of select from the current file, a list of items. Sometimes their list is in the dozens, if not hundreds, of items. This is considered by most as too many for 'simple' adhoc queries, to which I agree.

A solution may be to JOIN to that file in the first place, which I'll pass on to the users.

I hadn't used it before so wasn't sure what needed to be done I just saw it listed as an option. Hopefully your JOIN will work.

The use of a "List File', with an associated synonym did work. A caveat is that you need to start your report using the list file then join it to the associated source file.

All's well with this work-around in place. I knew we can do that in WebFOCUS.
