[Solved]WebFocus Repository tables, how to determine if chart or report.

Hi,

I would like to know how to determine if a .fex file is a chart or a report by using the webfocus repository files (wf_*). I can see that those files hold a lot of information about the content you can create in the webfocus tools, but I can't figure out how to determine if a .fex file is a chart or a report by using those tables. There must be a way to determine it as when you create a chart or a report they have specific icons for each.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks!
Kelly

Yes, the content is created using InfoAssist.

Thanks!

table wf_objectprops, filter on PROPERTY = OutputFormat, in PROPVALUE you'll see the format. JSCHART is a chart for example.

It looks like WHERE PROPVALUE = infoAssist,chart,IAFull then you have a Chart and WHERE PROPVALUE = infoAssist,report,IAFull then you have a report. But how do you figure out what the fex name is?

Hi BabakNYC

Join the wf_reposobj table with the HANDLE field to the wf_objprops OBJ_HANDLE field.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
