Data Source?

 Hi everyone,

Just running into some issues where if I change the data source of one report, the other report gets affected.

Has anyone run into this as well?

 

Thanks!

Hi Adi -- thanks for the question. Can you confirm that this is the scenario you are experiencing?

 

  1. You started with Report A
  2. You made a copy of Report A -- let's call it Report B
  3. You changed the data source of Report B, and the data source of Report A also changed

 

Is this correct? If so then that's highly unusual and we'd investigate further. More info will help here. Thanks!

Are you are using the same data source for both reports?  If yes, that is the problem.

Hi Alon G,

 

I don't think I made a copy of Report A to make Report B.

But Report B may have been a copy of Report C (possibly)

 

Thanks,
Adi

@Adi J: Ivan's response from above might be right. If you create two reports from the same data source, then change the data source, it will affect both reports.

 

You will want each of your reports pointing to a different data source if you want those two to work independently of each other. Hope that helps!
