We’re having a weird issue that I’m having trouble even trying to explain. In our project we have 3 different reports. It seems to be completely random, but every now and then a report we are working on will have everything in the Design tab overwritten by everything from report #1. The Data tab will remain unchanged. The only component we have copy and pasted between the reports was a text footer but that was in the beginning of the report building process. We were working on the report for quite a while after the footer was added without issue. It won’t happen as you’re working on it. It is after you close the report and open it back up at a later date.
The weird thing is if you copy and paste the report to create a duplicate, the “Report Snapshot” shows the report as it is supposed to be. But when you click on the Design or Preview tab it shows the pages from Report #1 even though the snapshot still shows the correct pages (see images below). It has happened on report #2 and #3. It is always report #1 that overwrites the other reports. Any help would be appreciated. We were lucky on report #2 because, for some reason, when I duplicated the report a second time it fixed it. No such luck on report #3. Hopefully all that work isn’t lost…
I can supply an export of the report if necessary. Let me know if it would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
