The report was created in the legacy ORD page (i.e. without Report Center) and does not contain any pages



As there is no page inside the report, you can delete and create a new one.

In case you would like to fix the report in the legacy ORD page, you would need to disable Report Center (this will affect all users with access to Report Center):

  1. Switch off Report Center
  2. Go to Report Designer
  3. Select the Report in the folder
  4. There is no pages inside the report
  5. Add page
