You can use the SET command to change parameters
that govern the WebFOCUS environment.
SET command parameters control the content of reports and graphs,
and the appearance of reports and graphs on the screen and when printed.
These parameters also control system responses to end user requests,
and data retrieval characteristics that affect performance. SET
commands also help you set up metadata and manipulate information,
such as dates.
The SET command governs many important aspects
of your work.
