Dashboard Component in Report Book

New Contributor III


I have a report book with Report item which contains a Dashboard Report. The Dashboard component is a Grid View with a BI Blend Data Adapter.


I get the following error when the report book is opened from FileShare.


I am using Dashboard Report type in Report Book, and per Design and Reference Guide: 

The chart and report items are application dashboard chart components, rather than dashboard components.

Does it mean I cannot use the Grid View Component in Report Book? 

I have the BI Blend data in a Dashboard Grid View component, and I need to get this into the book.

Please let me know if you are aware of any workaround to achieve this. 

Thanks in advance.

It's hard to say what could be going wrong - one would have to look at all elements on the dashboard, the data adapters, etc, to see if there are things that might not work in the context of generating a Book.

You might want to talk to Support, they should be able to do that sort of work.
