BI4.2 SP4

However, I can name several customers who are perfectly stable on each version we have.
So, depending on what issues you have you can pick the version that has fixes for them.
Also, how sure are you the issues you see are due to product code issues and not due to deployment or enviromental issues ?

try following this practice of checking the fixed issues guide of the further patches than a current one, for example the stable environment as mentioned above as BI 4.2SP3 Patch3 so in this case check the fixed issues guide of further fix patch maybe - Patch5...by the way one issue I remember in Patch5 is webi report print in excel format crashes the excel application itself...so just do these basic checks which might help..

Every version of BO has some issue or the other, some may be critical or some or not. Critical ones will be addressed in patch releases or Hot fix releases. It all depends on which tool sets you are planning to use. Start with latest version of BI 4.2 sp4 and latest patch, evaluate, if you see any issues which will be show stopper for you, work with support and get them addressed.

As Denis mentioned above, some issues may be deployment related, or code issues.

Thanks Denis/Jawahar for your replies.We also thought higher versions are more stable.

But one of the SAP Engineer told us 4.2SP3 Patch3 is more stable.So before going to start upgrade want to check with user community.

Want to let you know all WEBI is our main development area.

Once again thanks for your information.
