Upgrading From V6.2 to V7

Postby mikes » Fri Oct 19, 2012 5:03 am

Hi, we are starting to trial V7 in a test environment, has anyone experienced any problems with V7, we have already experienced problems with standard reports which have been modified not totalling coumns & more interestingly not showing any detail by project. Had hoped V7 would resolve the V6.2 problems but appears to be worse!

We've been warned that any customized reports, queries, and fields will have errors with the upgrade. This is not really any different than any other upgrade involving customizations.

Have taken the problem up with our support company who in turn have passed it on to the Deltek development team in the States as they believe it is a bug in the system!! First thing I looked at does not bode well

2 Bugs thus far, these may be something you are seeing:

Case #130107-001111-defect# -344722-The project progress report no longer prints the totals for the amount columns when the user has Role security access to cost amounts = Totals Only.

Case#121205-000837 -defect#-341554-Project Progress Report - users who have subtotals access ONLY to labor cost rate are seeing rates when report subtotals by employee.

That's a bit disheartening. Pre-release, we were told that 7.0 will fix totaling issues. On 6.X we've had the problem of our custom fields not totaling on standard reports.

As far as Custom reports breaking. All you have to do is take the RDL files and open them up in BIDS 2008 and save them out then add them back to the SSRS server via vision.
