Prompt to Save RRS feed

  • Question

  • If changes have been made to an existing row or column definition and the user does not save the changes – when the report is generated, the user is not prompted to save changes.  Is by design or an MR bug?

  • When a user makes a change to any building block, the end user should receive a prompt to save.

    I have been testing this and cannot reporduce. Could you provide the exact steps the end user is taking?

  • open an existing report definition
    use the open row icon to open the row definition
    make a change to one account in the FD column
    do not save
    use the icon on the toolbar to return to the report definition
    generate the report

    I don't get a prompt to save

    Same holds true for a column definition. 
    navigate the same way to a column definition that has columns  - Desc, Actual, Budget, $ Variance
    change the book code from budget_best to budget_original
    don't save the column definition
    navigate back to the report via the toolbar icon

    the version of MR is 6.01656.1
