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 know this has been discussed but none of my searches are finding it. I need to force a column to appear in a report even if there are zero rows of data for that column..

For example if I have a report that Sums Number of cars sold by brand and I didn't sell any Fords, I would still need Ford to show up with zero reported...(I can create a list of brands that have to be there in a hold file)

Can someone point me to this discussion or give me a quick how-to?

You could try SET ALL=ON which will put a . (or whatever you set NODATA to) and this will work assuming the SALES data (if any) is in a child segment of BRAND.

Found a solution using the phrasing:

ACROSS CARTYPE COLUMNS 'FORD' AND 'CHEVY'

Seemed to do the trick.

This solution is good if the list is static. If the list is dunamic, you can use the same code but populate the values from the data using Dialog Manager.
