APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • A report is authored with a drill through definition that points
    to itself.  The drill definition is set to run the report in the
    same window as Excel format.  When the report is set to run in
    the Interactive mode, after running the report from Team
    Content, clicking the drill through link throws the error "_07B
    is not a constructor".  If the report is run from Edit mode, if
    it is run in the classic viewer, or if the drill through
    definition is set to open in a new window then the error does
    not occur.
    

Local fix

  • Run the report in the classic viewer, or set the drill through
    definition to open in a new window.  Alternatively instead of a
    drill through the report can be authored with a Hyperlink that
    uses the Share URL for the report as its source.
