Management Reporter Building Block Import Features: Never Lose Sleep Again!

Another really nice new feature in MR (vs FRx) is the ability to import specific building blocks versus the entire exported building block group backup file.

The screen shots below show that even while I am not importing the catalogue, I can still import one of the building blocks (i.e. the row) associated with it.

Catalogue Not Seleted

Row Definition Selected

This is a great convenience for heavy report designers who like to make a full backup of their building blocks by exporting them prior to an all day (or more likely all night) report design session!

It is also a great feature for consultants to make use of when creating a reporting package solution or to troubleshoot report design.

Sleep well!
