Invalid report names in Base

Postby mfirmenich » Tue Jan 29, 2008 9:30 am

One of our users renamed reports and included / (slash) in some report names. Those reports are now unaccessible, and cannot even be renamed. Is there a solution, or do we need to recreate new reports?
Thanks

I'm assuming they are using version 2.3 ( maybe 2.2.1) - in 2.3.1 the report would run and the '/' would be replaced automatically with '_'. At least that is how I recall this went - but under 2.3.1 it won't even allow me to use a '/' in a name any longer so I can't test it. But you could try a test of it under a 2.3.1 installation. In fact under 2.3.1 you should be able to rename it properly to use a '_' save it and return the Base file to your customer if they do not want to upgrade themselves.

Well - that is a good thing, keeping current. But you know 2.4 should be out pretty quickly about 4 weeks I think and the new Report Builder release. I have been testing early releases of both and there is quite a bit in there for reports. Good stuff.

If you customer doesn't like updating all that often it might be better to use a copy of 2.3.1 to do the rename and have them wait for 2.4 and the Sun Report Builder 1.0.2.
