Hi,

BO reports and Cognos Analytics reports are different technologies. There is no mechanism to take a BO report and convert it into a Cognos report, unfortunately. You can import a BO Universe into Framework Manager to give you a head start on your package/s, but even then you will have a huge task in taking the imported content and re-modelling it to deliver accurate, consistent results (there are some fundamental differences in the way the two products generate queries).

For the reports, the best you can do is to use the original reports as a guideline for how your CA reports should work. Having said that, often you'll find that existing reports are not really relevant in many cases because the business has evolved since they were written, so really you'll be going back to first principles and doing analysis with the business on what their current requirements are.

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!
