  • Question

  • Unable to refresh data connections in Reports area of Project Online Preview, any ideas anyone?  This has been like this since I first started using Preview last year and has never been resolved.

    thanks in advance

  • Which reports specifically?  Most of the reports are built against the SQL database, which won't work online.

    The OData reports won't work by default, but Microsoft just released a fix for that - using the word "fix" and "release" loosely.  It takes a little configuration on your part:

  • Hi Andrew, well all of the listed Sample English (US) reports.

    With the blog you have pointed me at, does that just apply to Preview or the new proper Project Online full release?

    If the former then fine, if the latter does that mean if one of my customers signs up to the new Project Online then some of the sample reports won't work?

  • It works on both the cases and it doesn't give any impact to the sample reports.

  • Hi, can you clarify precisely:-

    If my customer signs up to Project Online will the sample reports open?   I had to do a demo today using an old preview site and whilst I just about got away with "the reports don't work" explanation I am hoping I don't have to deal with the same issue with the new production version???
