I have been pleasantly surprised by the stability and well-functioning of the current version (23) of the report editor. I can now actually modify old reports without the cold ring around my sitting muscles that it's all gonna go bezerk any minute, like a a touch with the mouse in a wrong place and suddenly it's all messed up. Not any more. Even the editing of the field outlines work now as they should.
Still, there are occasionally weird GUI errors, like:
"Error:The data source of the report references an element not found in the project or analysis.File: SOUSREQUETE_FROM_1BED0F20)
R_Maksut_In_R1_ALV, , line 1, column 1"
When I go and check the links of the fields, they are all lost, and replaced with a link to text:
-- Obviously, if the fields are searched from "SOUSREQUETE_FROM_1BED0F20", when the actual file used for this report is a query named "Q_MAKSU_R1_ALV".
Still, the report seems to work as it should!
I've seen this error a couple of times, and if I re-link the fields, the report editor will soon mess them up again.
While wasting my time with this, I noticed that it would be nice to see the name of the field also in the Link tab, and not have to jump back and forth between the General and the link tab to make sure that the correct report field is being linked to the correct file/query item.
Anybody else experienced this?
