    Hi Mohan,

    There are few functions which are supported in Desktop Intelligence reports and not supported in Web Intelligence Reports.

    So only, when you convert the DeskI Reports to WebI Reports you get partially converted for which you need to do those chnages manually.

    Here is the document which explains functions not supported in WebI.

    Hi Mohan,

    When a DeskI report is converted to WebI then you may face some problems like

    1. formatted related issues,

    2.some functions which uare available in DeskI were absent in WebI. E.g. MultiCube, Synchronizing of no of data providers

    3. some errors like syntax error, #error .....

    For more details goto help.sap.com -> business objects -> product guide -> there you can get no of documents related to different bo versions.

    Cheers,

    Suresh A.
