Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

We are migrating about 100 reports from mainframe to WebFocus and scheduling them through ReportCaster.

I don't need to know how to do this now because
we're swamped with the conversion but I'd like to know if anyone has ever written a Focus Report against the ReportCaster tables to determine if any reports have abended.

We had something like this on the mainframe and will need someting similar so we don't have to go through each log each day to see if the report ran.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim,

Have a look at column ERROR in BOTLOG. It is '1' for the execution of a schedule, if there is some sort of error message in the log.
Then in BOTLOG2 you find ERROR2. This column is set to 'Y', if the line contains an error message. The message itself tells you more.

You just have to make sure the master files are in your app path. At our site, we use APP APPENDPATH rcaster in administrative user profiles to limit those who can report against these tables (since some of them contain secure information)

Thanks guys for the fast turn around. This will help me very much when I get ready to write the report. If I have any more questions I'll submit another post.

Thanks again,
Jim
