When trying to change an existing join in an InfoAssist created report (it currently joins a month end date from the driver table to a date in table B, want to change which date in table B is joined to) after clicking OK in the join window, I get FOC258 error and it babbles about a parameter value which is used in a define field not being found. I believe this error is a red herring since the define code comes right after the join code.

Since this change needs to be made to about 50 InfoAssist created reports, I need to figure out what is going on because that is too many to recreate from scratch and just changing the code directly is not an option.

Have tried changing the join using the drag and drop and by choosing the field in the join filter window.

Any ideas

Thanks in advance,

Deb

I will post the code, but it is generated in InfoAssist. Im just trying to change the field the METRICS table is joining to on the DATES table. Here is the filter window from the join:

 

Here is the code:

Hi Deb

Out of curiosity, what fieldname does your FOC258 show you after the :

(FOC258) FIELDNAME OR COMPUTATIONAL ELEMENT NOT RECOGNIZED: %1

An element in a computational expression is not recognized. It may

be a mistyped fieldname or function.

Another thing Id suggest is removing your WHERE statement from the JOIN if thats possible. Youve got that same JOIN down in your GRAPH FILE request, so maybe its not needed in the JOIN

My rationale goes something like

 

you create a JOIN thats got a WHERE in it that refers to J001.

Then you try to change the JOIN and it temporarily breaks the connection to J001.

 

Maybe for that brief second, WF remembers the rpt_board_metrics file is still JOINed to the maint_reporting_dates table and its attempting to verify the WHERE condition in the JOIN. Seems like WF could get its hands crossed a little.

Or - just remove the JOIN first, maybe save it and then reopen to add the JOIN Something to get a JOIN CLEAR to happen on rpt_board_metrics before you are trying to alter the JOIN.

You can probably tell that I dont use the GUI tools that much

Just trying to think of how WF might be thinking that trips it up.

What do you think

The fieldname in the error message is the parameter that is used in the define statement.

That is what I was thinking, too. We tried deleting the filter before we changed the join, but it still errored.

Good thought on removing the join, saving and trying again. I will give that a try. Need to have the WHERE on the join because we want to just pull records that are greater than or equal to a date field on the joined table.
