Test Comments Date 07/14/08 Under Keep this version, I was able to save the report view to Informal/Campaign and ran it from the new location. It looks like I could have added the report view to most of the cube packages. Also, I was able to email the report to myself and both the link and the attached report worked Under Add this report, I was able to add it as a bookmark and it ran fine from there. 07/08/20 All test scenarios worked fine. 08
