    Importing report defs

    Anything obvious/simple that stops a workstation from importing rptdef files into SIMS (held on another machine via s drive) when 2 others do the same rptdef file OK?

    Maybe SIMS permissions? Or is it the same login?

    Aside from that my biggest question is why you want to import it from multiple machines? Once you import a RptDef, it should become a publicly available report in SIMS anyway...

    EDIT: just to clarify, by publicly available I mean that once a RptDef has been imported once (on any machine), it will be available via "Reports > Run Report" for all users, so shouldn't need importing again

    I know its a common system

    Just wandered why I couldn't import on one particular machine - its says the rptdef file isn't valid
    This was using same login as bursar normally uses on her machine
    Just wondered if it was a common/easy to fix issue

    When it happened, the sec on that machine said - oh - its always done that so I was just looking for a reason

    Not same pc login - I'll check to see if that user has big rights on the bursars machine (its just a peer-peer setup) - ta
