    have changed in Cognos 10. The differences are:??Cognos 8????

    Diagram?Metric List ???-> IBM Cognos Metric List??The metric
    portlet upgrade works fine when using an user with content
    language and product language set to English. The metric portlet
    upgrade fails when using an user with content language and
    product language set to non English language (German, French and
    Spanish tested).??error message:?CM-REQ-4328 A problem was
    encountered while importing the object
