How to change a universe for a query when the old universe has already been deleted

    Please restore the original universe from a backup! The webi report will look for this universe by a cuid (unique ID) and all objects within the Universe by cuid. This is your best option.

    Are you using the Administrator when editing report ?
    This could be rights issue, not due to universe being missing.

    The only way that I'm aware that you can do this is by creating a shell of the original universe - same name, etc. - then altering its CUID to reflect that of the original universe (assuming you can find it).
