can open locally saved 4.1 Webi report in 4.2?

Hi,

We are planning to update our BusinessObjects from 4.1 SP4 to 4.2 SP5. We have few users who saved their Webi reports locally on their machines. Will these users able to open these locally saved reports in 4.2 SP5 webi rich client and save it on the server after update?

Could anyone please let me know if it is possible to open/save these locally saved reports (4.1 SP4) in the new environment (4.2 SP5)?

I appreciate the help.

Kristen

    Hi,

    Yes, they should be able to save reports to previous versions to 4.2. Just that it is not a best practice to save WebI reports on desktop.

    Sometimes reports get corrupted, lose formatting features after migrating from older versions. Best option is to save in BI Launchpad atleast in their favorites or create their folders within Public folders. that way, if get corrupted, will have option to get backup file.

    Thanks,
