An overview of Fermilab experiment FOCUS and of its physics goals will be presented. During the 96-97 fixed target run at Fermilab we collected more than 6.3 billion events with the expectation of in excess of 1 million fully reconstructed charmed particles. Preliminary results on charmed meson decays will be reported.
