[CLOSED] FOCCACHE question
Hello

I never dealt with FOCCACHE and having issues with it. I have one HOLD file created from some code and will be using it in multiple reports on single HTML page. So, I am using FOCCACHE to hold it, so that data prep runs only once and all reports use the HOLD file instead of running the same data prep multiple times.
STATE foccache/HOLD_FILE.mas
-RUN
-IF &RETCODE EQ 0 THEN GOTO CONTINUE_REPORT ELSE GOTO CONTINUE_DATAPREP ;

I am using above code in reports to check FOCCACHE and direct flow to run report or data prep.
Even when I change my filter selections, its still running the same file from FOCCACHE. Am I missing something here?

Please suggest.

Thank you.

The FOCCACHE files exist for a period of time (depending on your client setting) to give opportunities to reuse the same data without the need to reload.

When you are doing :
STATE foccache/HOLD_FILE.mas
-RUN
-IF &RETCODE EQ 0 THEN GOTO CONTINUE_REPORT ELSE GOTO CONTINUE_DATAPREP ;

The &RETCODE is always 0 until your system clear the FOCCACHE so you always branch to CONTINUE_REPORT

Depending on your situation, different options may apply

How does the HOLD file is generated ? On request by the user from selection screen ? From an overnight job ? A pre-processing ? ...

HOLD file is generated by the user from filter selection screen. There is no over-night job.
