Report Designer missing 'group level' area - GUI problem?


Hi all -

I have a few questions here that I think are related, so I'm posting in one thread.

1) As far as what I've been reading on, we can upgrade to BI 7.0 even with a front-end SapGUI 640 (patch 19). True or False?

2) One can <u>only</u> use Report Designer with SapGUI 710. True or False?

And here's a long one...

3) When you open Report Designer should we see "Group Level" on the right-hand side (if it's checked to show)? Mine (having sapgui 710 at patch 1) was showing just the ruler, but not the "Group Level" areas... is this a gui issue? What's the fix?

[my history of GUI install:

Before upgrade: Sap GUI 640 patch 8

After upgrade: Installed NW4s BEx components only

(then getting dumps in the r3 back-end) so installed SAP GUI 710 from 50083078_4 cd.

Report Designer missing the group level areas... I thought, might as well install patch 01. But that did not help.]

Any input would be great!

Thanks guys (and girls!)!
