As far as I know, There is no direct way of Uploading files using webfocus. There is no direct INSERT of drag option also.

But
<input type=file>  


is the key. You can put this in your client side HTML code file, to get a File Open dialog.

But for UPLOAD you need to get on to any server side technology, like ASP or Java Servlets. Java servlets will be the Opt I guess.


Thanks,

Swati - you might want to check out the Upload Data File functionality in the MR Dashboard. You can read about this functionality in the Managed Reporting End User's Manual as it is only available from the Dashboard right-click menu. For release 7.7 it is on page 50 -53. This feature was added back in 7.6 and may help you.

Hi Sandy,

The upload functionality in MRE what you are mentioning about cannot be provided to an end user, as part of a paramter page or a Dashboard.

For Internal users or Admins, this is opt as you said.

Ramkumar,

That is not correct. As long as you check the box in the Dashboard View Settings for 'Enable Upload Data File Feature' the users will have the ability to upload their own data files and then use them as data sources for the reporting tools.

When the user does a right-click on the Custom Reports folder one of the options wil be to Upload a Data File.

Regards,

Dan

This would be a great New Feature Request to submit for InfoAssist! Having the ability to upload a data source from within that tool would be very convenient.
