Managing changes in the package
If changes were made to the package that was used to create a report, the report might need to be updated.
When you open a report, IBM® Cognos® Analytics - Reporting automatically checks to see if the package has changed. If it has, a message appears indicating that the report will be updated to the latest version of the package.
However, you might need to make additional changes to the report if the namespace name or query subject and data item names in the package have changed. Validate the report to identify the changes that are required, or to verify the changes that you implemented.
