Hi,

You will have to recreate your report with Report Studio.

I'm currently working on a migration from impromptu reports c7.4 to 8.3.

End-users are very please of the new reports, quicker, nicer and stable...

Regards

How did your catalogs get migrated? Cognos had once released a utility to convert catalogs into FM Model but I don't think that is available anymore.

You have to create Framework Models from scratch and create reports in Cognos 8 studios.

IBM have a utility called Migrate2C8 which can be used to bring catalogs and reports across into the Cognos 8 world.  Be aware that Cognos 8 and Impromptu tave totally different best-practice modelling strategies and you can do a lot of things in Cognos 8 that Impromptu wasn't capable of, so it's definitely worth investigating whether to migrate or simply rebuild your reports.

Regards,

MF.
Meep!

Hi MF -

Wasn't that utility creating lot of loop joins in FM? I see your point though. It depends on the inventory that needs to be migrated. If the catalog is simple enough then it might be worth migrating. It's possible that it would come out in FM without much problems and then add the C8 functionality to it, if required.
