[SOLVED] How to get around testing in independent sets of data
 Login/Join

I'm getting the "Testing in independent sets of data" message in a FEX I've got. In the FEX, I need to have the intermediate tables sorted by a certain critieria (in this case, Student_Id) but still be able to "pull" data from another segment of the same dataset.

What might be an easy way to get away from the warning message, and secondly, is this message something I should truly be concerned about?

Thanks in advance!

Go to the Advanced Search link and type in MULTIPATH. This is a setting that helps you control how selection is done.

Happy reading!

Try SET MULTIPATH=COMPOUND

I guess it would depend on your results as to how concerned you should be...it is the relationship with your where statments that cause this.

I think the spirit of the message is that 99% of reports are from a single logical path and you have probably done something wrong if you have a multipath in the wf reporting tree.

Normally this is the case and you have typed a fieldname wrong etc.



However there might be the 1% of cases where it is useful.

(You can suppress the message by SET FOC441 I think)

rdbmses solve the problem by cartesianing everything so there is no tree structure and this problem never occurs so you could set cartesian=on.

If you want to display 2 sets of children side by side (IMHO the most likely 99% of the 1%)then use

SET MULTIPATH=SIMPLE

Thank you all for responding, however, I still have some questions, based on how we use focus here.

We make our FEX's using VM/CMS XEDIT functions, and the same with making our JCL (Yes, we create our JCL for MVS/TSO in VM/CMS's XEDIT) and then submit via an EXEC, the batch JCL to run our FOCEXEC's on MVS/TSO.

I mention this only to let you see where I am coming from.....I don't think I have a way of getting to or using the Advanced Search feature mentioned, so is there information about this in a FOCUS manual somewhere, or can someone please further explain?

Thanks again....looking forward to hearing from you all!
