Hi Focal Point,
I'm looking for a profile that runs AFTER every fex runs. This would effectively be the same as a universal profile (which runs before your fex runs) but I'd like ti at the end.
The use case would be to add a global catch to say things like IF &LINES EQ 0 then give a friendly message or that sort of thing.
Appreciate any help on this!This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,
Nice idea, I wonder if you can do it in the site profile ?
I don't use a 'profile'. What I do, as do many others, is to add a line after appropriate TABLE FILE requests which does a GOTO IF &RECORDS EQ 0 in which there's a -INCLUDE of an HTMLFORM to display the 'Friendly No Data' message.
Albeit, a 'site profile' would be better, as Waz pointed out...
I appreciate the idea of a GOTO but this works only when you have access to the code of a report. If something's written in InfoAssist+ then adding that sort of logic is risky if you want to open it in the editor again.
Thanks for the thoughts. Any others before writing up a new feature request?
Do the users have free-range in IA? or, are they using ROs?
In version 8201m change the contents of WebFOCUS82\client\wfc\etc\prod\error_42.xml and adjust to what you want.
You have to restart the client (tomcat).

Doug, we don't use reporting objects at this point. Their post-processing option is exactly what I'm looking for except on a global scale (with ROs, if you ever want to change the post-processing logic you'd need to change every RO individually).
Dhagen, very interesting! I'll look into that!
Interesting dhagen... Thanks for that insight.
