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.

We have just switched over from 77 to 81 but now some of our reports that use FIND are hanging. The screen to prompt appears as before but when you make a selection nd click RUN nothing happens ! I assume it is a setting change and I compared the usual ones to 77 from 81 and all the same.
Here is a an example of our problem....
[CODE} TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT SEG.HEIGHT
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR
BY MODEL
WHERE COUNTRY EQ &COUNTRY.(OR(FIND COUNTRY IN CAR)).Country:.;
WHERE CAR EQ &CAR.(OR(FIND CAR.CAR IN CAR)).Car:.;
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
END
-RUN
[/CODE]

Works for me in 8.1.04 and 8.1.05
1. Is CAR file created in IBISAMP
2. IS IBISAMP in your path (? PATH tells you)
   a. APPENDPATH IBISAMP if not on path
3. Are you running code in MRE/Content
   a. Add -MRNOEDIT BEGIN at top of code 
   b. Add -MRNOEDIT END at bottom of code
4. If in Content, does fex have Prompt for Parameters check box checked

Thanks Tom.
CAR is on path otherwise I would not see my drop-down list of countries and cars. tries with -MRNOEDIT at start and end but makes no difference. Also Parameters box is checked.

Thanks again Tom - I got it working under Dev Studio 8104 (localhost) but I am convinced it is a setting change of some sort. Even when you do have just a simple WHERE statement (without FIND) it prompts you for the value but then when you click on RUN nothing happens !
eg.
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT SEG.HEIGHT
   BY COUNTRY
   BY CAR
   BY MODEL
WHERE COUNTRY EQ '&COUNTRY' ;
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
END

Hi Ian,
Yep, sounds like it. Make sure your parameter prompting is set to XMLRUN via the Admin Console:

Application Settings --> Parameter Prompting
Client Settings -- > Managed Reporting
