Receiving: One or more of the data sources used in this Report is not attached to the report message

I keep receiving this error message "One or more of the data sources used in this Report is not attached to the report" even though the data source is attached.  If I choose "Maybe Later", the report generates and is fine.  However, I need to send this to stakeholders and do not want them to go through this step.  It just started happening and won't go away no matter what I do.  (I have disconnected the data source entirely and reconnected - did not work.)

Hi Kim,

 

Sorry to hear that is happening.  

 

By any chance, are there filters in that report? If so, can you check the Resources > Manage filters menu (while editing the report)? I have seen instances where a broken filter actually triggers this error message. 

 

Hope this helps!

This worked perfectly.  I had some invalid filters that needed to be removed.  Once I did that the report open without being flagged as having issues.

I'm having this same problem too. I've clicked on everything in my report and none of the filters have the exclamation point that says that they're broken.

I did not actually have a broken filter - when I went to Resources>Manage Filters, I found a list of invalid filters.  (I had set some up for the individual charts/graphs, when I switched to a report level filter, it made the individual filters invalid.)  Once I removed them, the problem went away.

So pleased to have found this - I had this happening in multiple reports as I'd copied the same issue from report to report.

Edit > Resource > Manage Filters > Delete the one that has an issue.
