Saving reports and report views
If you want to save a report that you are viewing, use the Save Report icon, not the Save as Report View icon.
If you accidentally click Save as Report View and accept the default report name and location, you replace the report with a report view. Report views are different from reports and you cannot work with them in the same way as reports. For example, you cannot change the filters on a report view.
For more information about reports and report views, refer to the IBM Cognos Connection User Guide (IBM Cognos documentation is available from the Help menu; for instructions about accessing it, see Cognos documentation).
