Unable to run an IBM Cognos BI report which has been upgraded from Cognos ReportNet

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Unable to run an IBM Cognos BI report which has been upgraded from IBM Cognos ReportNet.

Symptom

'document.formWarpRequest._oLstChoicesSelFromDate.length' is null or not an object


Resolving the problem

In Cognos BI the IDs for custom objects are case insensitive. Due to this change the report must be altered. For example in the code below the object seltodate1 and SELtodate1 are viewed as the same objects and generate the error.

<selectValue multiSelect="false" name="seltodate1" parameter="ptodte" refQuery="QToDte" required="false" rowsPerPage="5000" selectValueUI="dropdown"> would be seen as a duplicate name of <selectValue multiSelect="false" name="SELtodate1" parameter="ptodte" refQuery="QToDte" required="false" rowsPerPage="5000" selectValueUI="dropdown">
