EPM report lost connection to BPC

Hi

We have a report created in the EPM client (with a number of sheets). The reports seems suddenly to have "lost the connection" to BPC. Meaning, if we open the report and log into the BPC model for which it was created, the EPM client doesn't reckognize the individual reports in the workbook (it is not possible to say edit report or similar).

I can create a new report on a separate sheet in the file without any problems.

If I try to insert a report on a sheet already containing a (broken) report definition, I get following message:

"Impossible to open the report editior. Check that all reports are connected."

So it has some acknowledgement of the workbook containing BPC reports.

I have tried to play around with user and sheet settings to no avail (the sheets are set to EPM Reports).

---

Do you have any suggestions as how to mend this?

Regards,

Karsten

    The issue has been resolved.

    It occurred because a dimension was removed from the model but was still present in the reports.

    We found out by:

    - First opening the EPM client and logging on to the relevant model

    - Then opening the report

    This way it actually reckognizes the reports.

    Fiddling a bit around it raised an error, that it didn't reckognize member "xxx".

      Hi Roberto

      Thanks for the input. However, we are on a later patch of the EPM client than relevant for the note (sorry for not specifying our patch level in the original post).
