Data sources remain linked to two reports

I made a copy of a report to preserve the layout and metrics to use on another client, so to change sources but not lool.

 

But when I change the sources of the copy, the original changes the sources also; the same way the other way aroung, if I change back the sources on the original report, the copy imitates.

 

Is there something wrong or something Im missing?

Hi Alcama,

Just wanted to know if you tried going through File > Make a copy > Source select > Connect. It should create an independent copy of report with same template.

Thanks,
Ritwik

Yes, I just did this and it solved it.

 

It would be nice to be able to copy a file with its sources and change them later.

 

Thank you.

If we didn't create the copy this way, is there a way to change it without having to redo it?
