In the IBM Cognos Insight User Guide, the topic that is titled "Importing and mapping dimensions or cubes" is missing some information about importing reports that include prompts. The corrections to this topic are addressed in this technote.
Resolving the problem
This topic should read as follows:
Only reports that were created in IBM Cognos Report Studio can be imported. If the report contains prompts, you must answer the prompt before you can import. Single-value prompts offer a list of possible answers to select from. For other prompt types, such as text or date prompts, you must enter a value by typing it in the format that the prompt expects. For cascading prompts, all prompts except the first needs to be resolved by typing in the value in the format that prompt expects.
