The you'll have to layout the report using the original Impromptu report as your guide.

You will end up with a suite of reports that are inconsistent, often break and are nigh on impossible to adapt as the business changes. My advice is to walk away if you are asked to take this approach. If you go down this route, what you leave behind will become a testament to how badly Cognos is implemented by people who take shortcuts and go for a quick-and-disgustingly-dirty approach. If your name is linked with this, it might follow you throughout your career...Just my opinion - feel free to ignore or adopt as you see fit :)MF.
