Report Caster and Repository tables
Silver Member

maybe someone has experience installing Report Caster on Windows.

During the installation period there is a possibility for user to select the Report Caster Repository (from Focus, Oracle, MS SQL Server 6.0 7.0, MS SQL Server 2000, DB2 and "Other SQL Repository").
Unfortunately, there I can't select "Focus", because it is disabled.

Maybe someone knows where is the problem?

Thanks a lot for your participation in Focal Point. Let me know if you need help with opening a case.

In short, Report Library stores object (Reports) as a blob. If you are using only Report Caster and not library the FOCUS database option will be available!
