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 had a report similar to this in WebFocus 7703 and, in ReportCaster, the variables we set up were optional and it would run with at least 1 variable populated.
When I moved the report to WebFocus 8009, ReportCaster is now giving me an error that "A VALUE IS MISSING FOR &VARIABLE". Here's an example:
SET NODATA = ' '
DEFINE FILE CAR
SHOW_RTL/D7 MISSING ON = IF RETAIL LT 5000 THEN RETAIL ELSE MISSING;
TABLE FILE CAR
WHERE ( (COUNTRY EQ '&COUNTRY') OR
(CAR EQ '&CAR')
In WF7 RC, If I put &COUNTRY = ITALY and left &CAR null, it would run with all output where COUNTRY = ITALY.
In WF8 RC, If I put &COUNTRY = ITALY and left & CAR null, I'd get this error:
BTP1020 Executing focexec. BTP1020 Connection to the Reporting Server EDASERVE closed at 2017-02-18 08:07:01.159-0800 (1,487,434,021,159) BTP1020 Job ran on the Reporting Server EDASERVE for 0.0080 seconds BTP1020 Task error: A VALUE IS MISSING FOR: &CAR BTP1010 No report to distribute.
How do I fix this in WF8009 using ReportCaster?
