By title do you mean the filename being burst? I thought each burst section of the report output from a scheduled report procedure (FEX) is named burstvalue_filename.format (for example, Northeast_Sales.pdf)

Also, what version of WebFOCUS are you running?

Edit the schedule and check the Report Properties / Save Report As value under the Task. Is there some kind of &variable for a date timestamp at the beginning? What is in that box?


Thank you for using Focal Point!

HI FP MOD CHUCK,
Under the task Save report as '%BURST'.pdf. I do not have any other date variable other than this '%BURST'.pdf.

I am using 8.2.03 and used '%BURST'.pdf and the report attachments did not have any date values. Try changing %BURST to some meaningful text for the schedule and see what happens. If that still doesn't work please open a case with techsupport, they may have the answer.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

You can include a burst value in the name of a distributed file by using the '%BURST' syntax in the name. So, you're substituting the sort values here for the name of the file.

I suspect your burst field value has a timestamp in it as that is what %BURST displays. If this is still an issue I suggest you open a case with techsupport.
