    How to duplicate a report?

    Peter2_1

      I have a user-defined report, called "my report". I want to duplicate it and to modify the new one a little bit.

       

      Try a)

      Right click on report - "copy". Right click on "User defined reports" - paste.

      -->> Message: "You can not paste because the name already exists"

      -> Why is there no automatic or manual rename function?

       

      Try b)

      Right click on report - "copy".

      Right click on report - edit - rename it to "my report orig".

      Right click on "User defined reports" - paste.

      -->> Nothing happens (no pasting, no message, ..)

       

      Try c)

      Right click on report - "save as - XML to harddisk.

      Right click on "User defined reports" - "open report" - select file

      -->> Nothing happens.

       

      Try d)

      Right click on report - "save as - XML to harddisk.

      Right click on report - edit - rename it to "my report orig".

      Right click on "User defined reports" - "open report" - select file

      -->> Yes, "my report" is imported

       

      How should it work?

      Is Try d) really the only solution?
