[SOLVED] Locating subtly placed .fex file...
Odd question, I've inherited a dashboard page and I need to edit it... But the way it was designed, in the HTML Composer in App Studio (8.104) I cannot actually see the report. As in, There's some listboxes to control filters, and a "run" button, but no report box in the composer. Somehow the run button is linked to the .fex file, but I can't see how.

From the textview, the .fex file is called in this chunk of code

request requestid="IN00SS21-Student_Source-Citizenship" sourcetype="typeFex" ibif_ex="/WFC/Repository/International/International-Operational/IN00SS21-Student_Source-Citizenship.fex

Where would I find this in the html composer?

Based on that string in the Content area you should see a domain folder called international then under that International-Operations and the fex should be there.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Hi Chuck,

Thank you for the suggestion, but I can locate the fex file in my environment.

What I am struggling with is how the html page in composer is calling the file. If I view the html code directly, I can see it being called. But when I look in the UI in App Studio, I can't see how the .fex file is being called. There is no report on the canvas.

Probably associated with the Run button.

Go to Tasks & Animations and locate a task with a Click event
