Select and FD statements are not adding to worksheet when specified via a uid


If you right click on a select or FD statement and select show is set viewer you will see the statement in the set viewer.  However, if you try using the uid # for that statement you will not.

To use the uid, select an FD statemente and in a shell enter show selected:>uid;

Then, in a file, enter the uid number and a category.

Open a worksheet

use the Apply/update POI categories from file analysis tool to add the uid.


Go to Project

Go to FD and select it (right mouse/select)

Go to Tools/Shell

Type:  show selected:>Uid

save this to poicat.txt

Go to explorer - edit poicat.txt (which should be in the project folder)- delete the first line (any line without UID on it)

Add the category - it should look like this:


save this file.

go to Product/Analysis Tools

find analysis tool - "Apply/update POI categories from file"

locate the poicat.txt file (it should default to the one in the project folder)

press OK -

go to Enterprise/Worksheet - find under statements or other the entry.

Using the semi-colon and not a comma works as the delimiter
