View Filter Information without Connecting

We are making some significant changes to the way our users connect to analysis which mean that they wont be able to connect to the existing datasources, as a consequencs they wont be able to refresh any existing reports. Is there any way to see the filter information for an existing report without being able to connect to the datasource?

If we can extract this then the user can rebuild any reports.

    I am not sure how you would extract the filter for this
