    In SharePoint, navigate to the PerformancePoint Content list.

    • On an Analytic Grid or Chart report item, click on the item menu and select Display Report

    • Open the saved XSLX file
    • Click the Dashboard link (cell B3)
    • The browser will open to a page displaying an error message, "There was a problem setting the item location URL. The URL for the SharePoint item is invalid."

    The URL in the workbook is in the following format:


    The ampersand should not be HTML-encoded. It should be:

  • Hi there,

    From what I have seen, the primary way to report a bug would be to open a support case with Microsoft, on the Sharepoint 2010 platform.

    Alternatively, try contacting sharepointblog@live.com for an answer.
