I would like to flatten out some health information using an across hold file but I can't seem to get it to work. Whenever I try to put the information into the hold file I get the message '(FOC070) ACROSS IS IMCOMPATIBLE WITH THE REQUEST' Below is the code that I am using and an example of the output I get. I know I can create hold files for each HLTH CODE but I thought there should be an easier and more efficient way of doing this.

TABLE FILE SYVSTAI
SUM
     IMMU_CODE
BY  ID
ACROSS HLTH_CODE
END

	MEA1	MEA2	MUM1	MUM2	MCV	PPD	
3456			CO	CO		FE
4456	CO	CO	RE	RE		
5433	CO	CO	CO	CO	CO	CO

hi,

yeah. And easier way is possible.

1)
Make a define for each column.
DEFINE FILE SYVSTAI
MEA1_CODE = IF HTLH_CODE EQ 'MEA1' THEN IMMU_CODE ELSE '';
MEA2_CODE = IF HTLH_CODE EQ 'MEA2' THEN IMMU_CODE ELSE '';

etc.etc.
END


2) magic match!
MATCH FILE SYVSTAI
SUM IMMU_CODE AS 'MEA1'
BY ID
WHERE HLTH_CODE EQ 'MEA1'
RUN
FILE SYVSTAI
SUM IMMU_CODE AS 'MEA2'
BY ID
WHERE HLTH_CODE EQ 'MEA2'
RUN

etc.etc.

Or use format FOCUS:

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES
BY COUNTRY
ACROSS CAR
ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT FOCUS
END
-RUN
TABLE FILE HOLD
PRINT *
END

Hi Trudy

Just to wrap up this thread, I wondered if you could pass along your version of WebFOCUS and which HOLD FORMAT you were using when you got that FOC070.

Thanks!
Toby Mills
