I was wondering if there is a way that I can print a list of all the reports I have made in WebFOCUS?

How about updating your profile to let us know what version and platform you work on? Self service applications or MRE?

I suggest looking at the APP QUERY command.

This command creates a list of files within one or more Application Folders. Unfortunately it does not differentiate between file types - all files are listed. The data can be sent to a HOLD file for further processing.

In Windows, you cannot determine which user created a file, so you really cannot "print a list of all the reports I have made".

For MRE, one quick method is to read the HTML file that contains the MRE repository structure, usually located at C:\ibi\WebFOCUS76\basedir\mrrepos.htm. There are entries for programs within virtual folders within domains.

Now is there something that will tell me where those reports are located?

You have created reports that you don't know the location of?

One way to determine where a fex is (if it is in an Application folder) is by running the WHENCE command:

WHENCE TEST1 FOCEXEC

Result:
C:\ibi\apps\fmarian\test1.fex

No my boss would like a list of reports and where they are located.

Thanks this has helped.

What you can do is a dos dir command against ibi\apps and direct the output to a file. Create a generic master, i.e. LINE100 with one field of A100, and point it to your directory listing. Using POSIT, SUBSTR, etc., you can pull out pieces of each line and create a nice WebFOCUS report from it. This would make a great active report if you are licensed for that.

Another way to show the FEXes that you have is with SYSFILES.

It does rely on what your path is set to though.

SQL FMI SET SYSFILES FOCEXEC
TABLE FILE SYSFILES
PRINT *
END
