    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Cognos Report Viewer widgets are not displayed correctly after
    you
    import Business Space from WebSphere Business Monitor V7.0.0.4
    to
    IBM Business Monitor V8.0.1.1.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that removes the URL format prefix from the
    href attribute. After the URL format prefix is removed, the href
    attribute looks like the following bolded text:
    
    <A style="DISPLAY: none; VISBILITY: hidden" lang="en"
    class="mm_Item" href="#dateDimensions">
