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.

I have a multi-tab Excel report, produced using
SET COMPOUND=BYTOC

Is there a way to change the vertical alignment of all cell content from "bottom" to "middle"?

(WebFocus 7.1.6)

Hi Jack,

I check with our technicals and was suggested that, it looks like the alignment feature you want is ‘middle’.

It is not possible today, and there isn't an existing NFR for it either. It would be a reasonable NFR to have ALIGNMENT=bottom, middle, top
Along with the existing justification settings JUSTIFICATION= left,right, center.
This would make report that have wrapped columns easier to read.

If you would like to submit a New Feature Request (NFR), please open a case with Information Builders' Customer Support Services, by either call at 1-800-736-6130, or access online at InfoResponse.

Cheers,

Kerry

I did open a case.

My work-around was to use an Excel template with an auto_open() macro that applies this and other decorative touches.

I included a mechanism to prevent the macro from applying the changes more than once, so the user can save the report, and then open and close the saved workbook without getting a message about discarding changes.

Hi Jack,
