Copy of a Report Page remains synchronized, want to disassociate to make changes

    Hi all,
         I made a copy of a Cognos report page, and created a new query and pointed to it, but it still remains synchronized to the other page.  I have created a second query (a copy of the first one also), and pointed to it.  Unfortunately I made a lot of changes to the second page which also overwrote the first page so I have a lot of re-work to do to restore the first page.

    Hi Jim,

    we solved similar issue lately. We found in XML definition that the metapath to query is not dynamically updated. You can modify the report definition, however a new report is created, if you open it from clipboard.

    We used Cognos DRU tool that updates the XML in the report.
    1. The behavior seems like a Cognos bug.
    2. It would be great to modify the XML definition in the report studio. I created an idea https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/ideas/CA-I-3259
