FOCUS Documentation

FOCUS is a non-procedural reporting language that uses simple English-like phrases to generate ad hoc reports.  CIRS is currently running FOCUS 7.6 on IBM mainframe (S/390).  The vendor for FOCUS is Information Builders.  


An introduction to FOCUS commands is provided in the workbook for Basic CIRS Reporting.  However, you should have access to FOCUS documentation for a complete description of all available commands and reporting options. We recommend you download the following FOCUS manual from our password protected site.
