Adding objects to an object package


I am using DESKi XI and I am trying to add a .rep report to the CMC so I can schedule it every day in InfoView.

On page 189 of the BO Enterprise Administrator's Guide it says to open the object package in the CMC, click the New Object button and a list of object tabs will appear. It says to click on the appropriate tab, REPORT or PROGRAM.

I see icons on the left side of the window for Program, Microsoft Excel and Word, Adobe, Text, Rich Text, Power Point and hyperlink. Nothing for "Report". If I select Program or any of the other choices a browse window comes up so you can identify the location of the object. When I identify the .rep file I get an error warning that it did not expect a .rep extension, do you want to continue? I have said yes, but when scheduling the object it never runs.

There are other DESKi objects that came with this copy of our CMC, so I know you can load a .rep object...Please help...
