Use the Same iDOCID to Access Reports



We have users using opendocument to access reports utilizing iDOCID= parameter. The problem we have is that a report is replaced with a copied report after it has been edited, the iDOCID changes and therefore all links are broken until the user changes the link.

This is due to the fact we do not let users edit reports in our Public area so the only way to edit a report and keep the iDOCID the same is to "move" it from Public to Favorites and "move" it back to Public. This isn't acceptable because the report is not available for the amount of time it is not in the Public folder which may be days. Since our environment is like this, users only have the ability to make changes to a copy and replace the Public report with the copied report, changing the iDOCID for the opendocument links.

I'm looking for a solution where the iDOCID stays the same and was wondering if anyone had a solution to this problem.

We are running BO v3.1.

Thanks for your time,
