Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

I would like to use botsched to retrieve a large file from the mainframe to use as data
source for reports created in WebFOCUS.

This file is created nightly in a batch process.

Can anyone provide any pointers? I am researching this on the Techsupport site.

Thanks Wink

First off, when you say using BOTSCHED, do you mean you'd like to time this process to run under ReportCaster?

Off hand, I'd say to use System/Shell commands to do a copy (or cp) of the file into one of the WebFOCUS APP directories. You'll need a corresponding MAS file that provides the data definition.

From your signature it looks like you have WebFOCUS on the Mainframe.

Where is the file to end up ?
Is there a WebFOCUS there ?

If so, and the connectivity exsts, you can get WebFOCUS to "PCHOLD" the file to one of the other WebFOCUS installs.

You could also call FTP if it is available.

We would need to know more info on the source and destination.
