Switching a Webi Universe from a report


Hi All,

I have a situation going on with our BO system. Recently, we lost a universe(reason undisclosed) with it's folder from the system and all reports connected to that Universe won't refresh due to no underlying universe. We were able to promote a copy of this universe from QA env. so the universe is back in place now but the reports won't automatically connect to this universe, each time I try to edit the report it comes up with a error "This query cannot be edited". I was wondering if there is a way to manually point the report to the new universe that was recently promoted to make up for the existing one. I tried opening the report in rich client as it would let you change the data provider but in this case that option is greyed out.

As a back up plan, I can create these reports again based on the recently promoted universe but now I have no visibility to the Query panel too, so figuring out the filters and conditions used in the report is also an issue.

To summarize what I'm looking at this point :

1) Is there a way to switch the universe of the report and point to the new one (it's an identical copy) when the option is greyed out?

2) is there any way I can find out what filters/conditions are used within a report when the query panel shows as blank with only an error message ?

Any insight on this will be very much appreciated, please feel free to share your thoughts on this.
