Hi,

I have a drill down fex which will have 2 include commands.

  
 -DEFAULTH &WFFMT = 'HTML'

-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/xxx/xxx/xxx_detail.fex
-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/xxx/xxx/yyy_detail.fex



How do i pass parmater to the include fexs from the drill down.
When i click on the drill down column from the first fex,it navigates to second fex,and i can see the value being passed on the variable in the url,but how do i hand it over to the include fexs.

If you are passing the variable to the fex that has the INCLUDEs in it, they will be available to both includes.

What is happening ?, can you explain further.

I am doing drill down from a report called demo1.fex.
So in demo1.fex i mentioned,

TYPE=DATA,
     COLUMN=N4,
     DRILLMENUITEM='Demo Detail',
          FOCEXEC=IBFS:/WFC/Repository/InfoApps/xxx/xxxx/Rpt_Drill1.fex( \
     START_DATE=&START_DATE.QUOTEDSTRING \
     END_DATE=&END_DATE.QUOTEDSTRING \
     I_NUM=N4 \
     ),  


In Rpt_Drill1.fex i have two include commands like below.

  
-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/xxx/xxx/Rpt_detail1.fex
-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/xxx/xxx/Rpt_detail2.fex


I should pass those START_DATE,END_DATE,I_NUM to those Rpt_detail1.fex and Rpt_detail2.fex.

You said in the reply that those three values will be available to the Rpt_detail1.fex and Rpt_detail2.fex.?
Am i correct?

Yes, that is correct.

You said that you can see the parms being passed, are there any FOCUS errors ?

In the URL i can see that the parameters being passed.No errors,but the include fexs is still using the default values for its execution not the values being passed.
I will have to debug whether i have used the correct parameters name and i will post reply.
