Our company used to use Cognos to develop reports, but hasn't for several years. I need to retrieve the SQL from some of the existing reports. We don't have a Cognos administrator, nor anyone who knows much about the product. We are running Cognos 7, Version 2.
I can get in to Cognos, and can open a catalog and connect. I can also open .IMR files and run the reports.
My problem is that when I go to Report/Query to get the SQL, "Query" is always disabled, so I can't get at the SQL.
Any ideas as to how I can get at the SQL?
