Hi,

I am looking for some options if we can connect Mainframe Focus Databases to Cognos Reporting Tool. If anybody have any knowledge or any document on this, that will be helpful

I don't have an answer, but maybe you should contact the poster of this topic via PM:

and see if he/she ever found out the similar information.

Hello,

Suggest you open a support issue with Information Builders (the vendor for Focus).

I don't know about Cognos specifically, but IBI says this about Focus:
Quote:
FOCUS can create reports from virtually any database, relational or legacy.

Hello,

My apologies. . . I misread the original request icon_redface.gif

Suggest you contact IBM and ask if Cognos is able to access Focus data.
