I see your problem looks like WOD or a bug you should open a support case...
Copy and Paste only seems to work when done from different groups I would have expected a paste to yeild a "Copy OF" type of output.
I did have some success with Exporting it, editing the Report Name with Notepad and then Importing...
Your best bet is to Export the report to .xls or .pdf and manipulate the data elsewhere. Is it that maybe the list is copying the machine names? Try running the paste inside a new device group maybe?
If you're referring to copying the entire report... When you copy a report in LANDesk, it merely makes it available to paste into another user's report group. It is not a "copy". If you make changes to the report then it does change the original report. Quirky LANDesk thing... Hope this helps.
Yeah...MY definition of "Copy" and LD's definition definitely aren't the same. I wanted a "Copy Of..." paste, so I could just go in and change what I needed to change. Not START FROM SCRATCH. Ouch!
But since this is the way that it works...this is what I'll live with.
Here is another option, again it is manual and annoying but at least it is a workaround. If you export the report as an xml file and then go into the xml file and change the name of the report in, i believe 2-3 places within the xml file, and then import it in you can keep the report setup intact.
Hope this helps...
This may sound really daft and I am sure it is very simple.
But how do I import a report?
I am on LD 8.8 SP3
Just right click on 'My Reports' and the Import and Export options will be there.
