[SOLVED] Compound Report in Developer Studio not working

Hi all. I'm running Dev Studio 8104 and I'm running a large compound report created in the report composer, and getting the following error (shown below). All of the sub-reports in the composite report work. I'm not sure what this "rltemp.fex" is.

Many thanks.

Dev Studio or App Studio?

Does the document open in Composer?

Is the HTML on the reporting server app directory or in a Domain?

Do the individual pieces referenced in Composer run on their own?

That rltemp.fex is some report/chart saved by default during report or chart crash. WebFocus many times will save that report/chart even though it crashed. Try to access it and see which report/chart is it.

Best approach for compound report, it is to create subreports separately and THEN reference it to the compound report.

Regarding the compound, on 8.105 compound report will crash like this if reports/charts included in the compound are NOT published.

Try to publish reports/charts of compounds and see if the problem has been solved.

I answered 1 & 4 in my original post. The document *does* open in composer. The reports all live in the Repository, I'm not technically knowledgeable enough to answer that question.

All of the reports are already created separately and linked to in the report composer. I had noticed that not all of them were published, so I did that, but it didn't make any difference.

So, based on the fact that all the underlying fexes are being referenced in the GUI/Composer, run fine (no auto-prompting) and published, please check to ensure that none of the report components are overlapping (I normally ensure that there's at least ".01" inches or 1 pixel, between components).

Also, has this compound report been edited in the (beloved) Text Editor?

Please verify that and the other items and let us know the results.

Hi Doug, good questions.

While I have *viewed* the report in Text Editor, my mentor Peter Webb told me to never ever edit in Text Editor so I haven't.

No reports were overlapping, but some touching. I did my best to separate them a little further if possible.

And.... It still crashes. Frowner

Another tidbit: This report was original created in 7706. It has run for about 5 years with very little modification, so it's a rude surprise that when I went to run it this year it wasn't cooperative.

1) It did open with no issue in the 8.104 Dev/App Studio Composer with no issues, messages, etc.

2) All reports ran with no issues, auto-prompting, messages.

I do know that the code has been "tightened" in WF8. So, I'd do a view source on each fex to ensure that there are no underlying issues. I'm suspecting that you'll see a culprit, or two Frowner.

Ok, so I got it to work. Here's what I did

(1) Copy over all of the code from my reports to a new fex file

(2) Re-referenced from the composer to all 40 new sub reports

(3) Fixed a text box that had some borders going underneath a report.

I don't know *why* that fixed my problem, other than it actually *did* fix it. Smiler
