Same report and universe give different result in XI R2 and XI R3


Hi all,

Has any one of you encountered such problem before?

In my case, I originally developed the universe and reports on XIR3 and then I was told that the upgrade of production (XIR2) will be delayed. Therefore I moved XIR2 testing environment and developed the universe and reports (yes, start everything from the beginning as BO does not support downgrade migration).

However, I found the same queries which are working in XI R3 are not working in XIR2.

To verify my observation and make sure I didn't do anything wrong in universe and reports, I migrated the objects from XIR2 testing environment to XIR3 again and found things working in XIR3!

What I am trying to display in report is quite complicated to describe and example here.

Simply, I have a table to store monthly sales information.

In the report, it contains a crosstab, which consolidates the sales information of every year's last/latest month and annual information.

So, I built 2 queries, query A retrieved every year's last/latest month sales information only and query B retreived summary information of every year.

It seems working in XIR3 but in XIR2, the columns from query B become blank.

Any one has similar experience during migration or in the report development?

Thanks and Regards,
