    We chose to "migrate" the workbooks from 3.5 to 7.0 format (actually, we built new ones in the 7.0 format), but not the queries. We left them as 3.5 versions (for now).

    That way, we get the new functionality of the 7.0 workbooks (drag & drop, etc.), but can continue to run the queries in all 3.5 and 7.0 BEx tools. Of course, once you upgrade a query to 7.0 there are a few extra things you can do that are not possible in 3.5, so if you need any of these new features, you will have to upgrade. However, be aware that when you upgrade a query, all the objects associated with it are also upgraded, including any CKFs and RKFs, so that has to be planned for.

    Lastly, so far we are seeing a significant performance degradation when running the same queries/reports in 3.5 workbooks vs. 7.0 workbooks. However, we have not had a chance to do much "tuning" yet, so we are hoping to overcome this before we roll out the new workbooks to the users.

    Hope this helps...
