Why are my pdf Qual report templates no longer readable with report builder?

I have a report template that I edited using report builder (probably 10.1). I installed Quant 10.1 which also updated report builder to 10.2. I think.

The error is

'Cannot activate designer

'Agilent.MassSpectrometry.DataAnalysis.CustomWorkflowReport.DataSourceDesigner_10_0, RptBldReportEngine'

Anyway whether this is the cause or not I can no longer edit the template and I NEED to. It has been a while since I last edited am I doing something stupid? I am attaching the template file. 


qualitative reports


Update: also have the same problem with all versions of report builder I can find.

  • Hi Imma - in general, a report template can't be edited by a version of Report Builder different from the one that created it in the first place. If you open the template in notepad - and look at the <EditorVersion> variable - it will tell you which version of the RB tool created that report. You should be able to USE the template in Quant 11 - but perhaps not edit it in Quant 11's report builder.
