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.

[CLOSED] FML Report Layout
Platinum Member
Hi All,

I never worked on FML but I have a request for a report which i feel like can be done using FML. I have a doubt on I am looking for some suggestions.


ABC - Text CurM PrvM CurQ PrvQ
xyz - Text
MetricField1 1234 765 6787 543 - Number
MetricField2 2.1% 1.1% ........ - Percentage values
DEF - Text
asd - Text
MetricField3 657 345 335 435 - Number values
Metric4 0.1% 8% ............ - Percentage values

Using the regular table request we can define custom field format like Field/Myformat = If FIELD EQ 'ghj' THEN 'D12.2' ELSE 'I11 ; something like this. How I can achieve this for the above layout?

I appreciate any suggestions in achieving the above.

FML looks like the answer to the formatting of the report but I'm not clear on your field formatting example as to which metrics you want to apply it to.

Thank you for using Focal Point!
