BI4.1 Rich Client Not Able to Import one big webi report


Hello Experts.

We have BI4.1 SP6 and also BI4.2 SP2 environment. We have one huge webi report with has lots of queries, highly complex and lots of formatting with lots of graphs and charts.

We are able to access this webi document using BILaunchPad in View as well as Modify Mode and we are able to make changes in Applet mode as well. But when we try to import this webi document using Webi Rich Client, it just takes forever to load this report and never loads it.

I'm able to import other webi documents, except this document. Any idea what I could do so that I can import this webi document in webi rich client, make changes and then export it back?

The reason i want to import in rich client is that this report has queries pointing to excel managed sources. I need to repoint these queries to unmanaged excel sources which are on the shared drive.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you,
