[CLOSED] Burst Value is not the same as pdf Name

Hi,

strange Situation
8105: I have a Report, bursted, Shows perfectly fine the Name of the burst Value - as expected.
Name is like something_ISIN.pdf

8204: same Report, nothing changed, works, Content of the pdf's are correct, but:
Name is now something_ISIN1_ISIN.pdf

For all my bursted reports I get the "extra" of another ISIN in my Name, always the same ISIN.

When I run the masterprocedure itself, where the Name is fixed, I don't get the extra ISIN..

No idea where this one Comes from..

do you?

Thanks,
Jenny

If you edit the task for this job and look at the Save Report As field what do you see?

Server Report? What do you mean?

Easy example:
Content File:

-SET &ECHO=ALL;
SET ASNAMES = ON

TABLE FILE baseapp/CAR


BY COUNTRY NOPRINT PAGE-BREAK
BY COUNTRY
BY MODEL
BY BODYTYPE

ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF

END

-RUN

metadata File:
-SET &ECHO=ALL;
SET ASNAMES=ON

DEFINE FILE baseapp/CAR
ABSPEICHERN_UNTER/A40= 'Country_' || COUNTRY;
DEST/A44=ABSPEICHERN_UNTER || '.pdf';
END


TABLE FILE baseapp/CAR

PRINT COUNTRY AS 'VALUE'
DEST AS 'DEST'

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
ON TABLE PCHOLD -*FORMAT PDF

END

-RUN


Schedule:
Distribution: FTP - Dynamic distribution list - no zip

As a test could you try changing the Save Name value to '%BURST' in quotes?

I just tried this and I'm not getting COUNTRY_COUNTRY like you are. You might want to open a case with IB tech support to see if they can trace your issue.

Very odd. I think you should open a case with IB.

Can you reproduce it, would be helpful?
To be sure it's not because of our Installation?

SET PAGE-NUM=NOLEAD
SET SQUEEZE=ON
-DEFAULTH &WF_HTMLENCODE=ON;
SET HTMLENCODE=&WF_HTMLENCODE

SET HTMLCSS=ON

SET EMPTYREPORT=&WF_EMPTYREPORT

-DEFAULTH &WF_SUMMARY='Summary';
-DEFAULTH &WF_TITLE='WebFOCUS Report';
TABLE FILE ibisamp/car

ON TABLE SET CACHELINES 100
ON TABLE SET GRWIDTH 1
ON TABLE SET AUTOFIT OFF
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
INCLUDE=IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/ibi_themes/Warm.sty,$
TYPE=REPORT, TITLETEXT=&WF_TITLE.QUOTEDSTRING, SUMMARY=&WF_SUMMARY.QUOTEDSTRING, ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE, $
ENDSTYLE
END

-RUN


I distribute with Report Caster with the Burst checked and I have COUNTRY_ in Save Report box. I received PDF attachments COUNTRY_ENGLAND, COUNTRY_FRANCE and so on. It's not repeating the burst value.

got it.
seems to be a bug.
without COUNTRY in my masterfile it works. It's writing the Value all by itself...

Hi Jenny,

It is indeed a bug in the WebFocus client in the Dynamic Distribution List. I had the same. I had a long case with techsupport, with a lot of effort on my side to reproduce for them and show the problem in the ReportCaster tracing. After all these efforts they suddenly recognized it is a known bug which was already solved in the next version 8205.
They did however backport the fix to our WF client version 8204, which solved it for us.
So you should ask for the same fix, maybe you can refer to our case number 190308016.

success, Martin.
