Restore report


I've been trying to recover a Webi report after the data connection 'disappeared'. Based on some forum info I've tried to restore the file via the filesystem. However after restoring the physical backup of the .wid file.

This made me run into more trouble, since now the portal throws the error "The document cannot be created or opened. The error code is: FILE EXISTS BUT IS INVALID. (Error: INF )"

Would anyone know how to fix this properly?

Kind regards

    I am not sure which method you used to recover the webi report from file system. Looks like the webi report got corrupted. If you have tools like 360, you will be able to recover the webi report without any issues.

    • I have found the file location via selecting the properties of the report, it shows the file location there.

      I have tried 2 backups now, but both files result in a corrupted report, while I'm sure that during the backup the report was functioning properly. You're talking about tools like 360, not sure what you mean there. I have tried opening the file with the rich client with no success.

    if some one opened the report in Webi rich client then you can find the copy of the report from local system.check if this helps you.

    • Hi Amit,

      Unfortunately it didn't. Even previous reports resulted in the same error. I've started to doubt whether the comment of the client that he has used the report recently is mistaken. Problem was solved by creating a new report.

      Thanks for your help
