1. Export the package (and its reports if needed) from Dev via a deployment export.
2. Move the deployment file from the Dev to the Prod server
3. Import the deployment on the Prod server.

He might be thinking that , reports will move , that will create issue to the users.

So why not just deploy the package without the reports? Why would someone give you a task then tell you how not to do it, when what they are telling you not to do is the approved, tried, trusted mechanism? Why haven't you questioned the instruction and clarified the misunderstanding as to why it should not be done in this way?

If someone said to you "I need you to knit a scarf. Don't use knitting needles" you would push back and question why knitting needles should not be used, wouldn't you? What's the difference in this case? Why should deployment archives not be used to move your packages? The reason you have stated above doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

Not a problem unless, of course, the practice at Inu's site is to place reports within a package. I've always understood this to be bad practice, precisely because of the problems it creates with content promotion.

Indeed! It's also easy to temporarily move the reports elsewhere if needed.

Yeah, MF. I found that query from this forum only...I removed that...
How to resolve this issue, or should i use detail filter for such a hectic issue.
