    Note: Every imported report zip file should have 3 files. ( 1 rptdesign file and 2 rptlibrary files)

  3. Check for report domain security.
    •      Extract the zip file
    •      Open the .rptdesign file on Notepad++
    •      Look for the report query and make sure that tables have "security" (eg. security:pa_student)
