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] Removing HTML tags in Report Heading

Hi,
I have a variable in report heading and that variable contains HTML tags (like
<HTML><B>
)in it. Its currently erroring out becoz of the '<' sign. is there any way to somehow mask the '<' sign and still retain the HTML tags.
I already tried doing a computed field for the "," sign but it adds a space after the sign and becoz of that the tag is not valid anymore.
and also i cannot create a computed field with that variable and use the field in the heading as my result set has more than million records.
Here is the Sample code.

-SET &HEAD = '<html><body><div> This is test sample </div> 

 need to retain the html tags </p> </body> </html>';
-SET &HEAD1 = '<LT|html><LT|body><LT|div> This is test sample <LT|/div> <LT|p> need to retain the html tags <LT|/p> <LT|/body> <LT|/html>';

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
CAR
COMPUTE LT/A1='<';
HEADING
-*"&HEAD.EVAL"
-*"&HEAD1.EVAL"
" "
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE PCHOLD  FORMAT EXL2K
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     UNITS=IN,
TYPE=REPORT,GRID=OFF,FONT='ARIAL',SIZE=8,STYLE=NORMAL, $
TYPE=HEADING,ITEM=1,SIZE=10,STYLE=BOLD,COLSPAN =3,$
ENDSTYLE
END

try using &|lt; and &|rt; for the left pointy bracket and right pointy bracket.

when you want to post code to this forum, surround your code with the code tags (see the little red icon right on the top of your edit message window)

Hi Susannah,
I tried &|lt; and &|gt; but they are not getting replaced as '<' and '>' in the Excel report heading output.

I tried storing &HEAD into a define and then used the define field in the header and it shows the text.

-SET &HEAD = '<|html><|body><|div> This is test sample <|/div> need to retain the html tags <|/p> <|/body> <|/html>';
-SET &HEAD1 = ' This is test sample need to retain the html tags ';

DEFINE FILE CAR
HEAD_DESC/A&HEAD.LENGTH='&HEAD.EVAL';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
CAR
COMPUTE LT/A1='<';
HEADING
"<HEAD_DESC"
"&HEAD1.EVAL"
" "
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS OFF
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD

Hi Crymsyn,
I cannot use Define or Compute as my report result set is very big (more than million)

What happens when you use a define ?

It should work.

More then a million?

I hope nobody needs to read or print this report.
I would kost many trees.

Can you explain why you want to do this ?
I get the feeling there is more behind this question.

Who needs 10.000 pages of printed data...

wf_developer,

How is this output going to be used ?

You are talking about more than a million rows.

I did not think any excel would read all of it.

Basically its a scheduled report which gets bursted to many users and most of the times the result set before bursting is more than million records.

Technique I learned from Francis.
Look at this post [CLOSED] Escape Character for Subfoots
Hopefully your burst will still work. Let us know.

  
-SET &LETH   = '<';
-SET &LESS  = '!IBI.AMP.LETH;';
-SET &HEAD   = &LESS |'html>' | &LESS | 'body>' | &LESS | 'div> This is test sample' | 
-              &LESS | '/div> need to retain the html tags ' |
-              &LESS | '/p> '  | &LESS | '/body>' | &LESS  | '/html>';
-SET &HEAD1 = ' This is test sample need to retain the html tags ';


TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
CAR
COMPUTE LT/A1='<';
HEADING
"&HEAD"
"&HEAD1"
" "

ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE HOLD AS H1 FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
UNITS=IN,
TYPE=REPORT,GRID=OFF,FONT='ARIAL',SIZE=8,STYLE=NORMAL, $
TYPE=HEADING,ITEM=1,SIZE=10,STYLE=BOLD,COLSPAN =3,$
ENDSTYLE
END
-RUN

SET HTMLFORMTYPE = XLS
-HTMLFORM H1

I don't think the burst will work with the HTMLFORM.

If it doesn't, I would suggest the DEFINE option.
