Object portability

You can export query results and other objects from QMF for TSO and CICS® and from QMF for Workstation and Websphere.

In QMF for TSO and CICS, you can export QMF queries, query results, procedures, forms, and tables from QMF to TSO data sets or CICS data queues. You can also create or modify objects outside of QMF and import them.

Reports can be exported in HTML format for fast and easy deployment to the Web. QMF adds an HTML header and inserts tags to display the report in its original QMF format in the Web browser. HTML reports are useful when working with LOB data.

Data and tables can be exported either from temporary storage or from the database in the following formats:
  • A QMF proprietary format
  • IXF format
  • XML format
  • CSV format
In QMF for Workstation and WebSphere®, you can e-mail query results directly from the File menu. You can also export results to a database or file in one of the following formats:
  • HTML
  • PDF
  • CSV
  • IXF
  • dBase III
  • XML
  • WQML
  • TXT
  • XLS

Visual reports and dashboards can be deployed in PDF, HTML, or Flash formats in both QMF for Workstation and QMF for WebSphere. With the advantages of a thin-client deployment model, QMF for WebSphere is the perfect vehicle for viewing reports. You can distribute visually rich projects by simply providing access to a single URL.
