Similar to the page inspector, we would like to have a report inspector.

The report inspector should allow us to see:
- The ID and Name of the current report
- The current selected layout (ID, Name, Type) of the report
- The Dataset, it's values, and applied filters, of the current report
- Any errors that prevent the current report from running (currently there's no error info available when something goes wrong.)
- The ability to export the dataset (to xls, xml,...), so it can be analysed

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Hi Mike,

Can you give us an update on the status? Is this idea on the roadmap somewhere?
Especially with report extensions this will become even more important.

Greetings,
Steven

It's been 2 Years now and this essential Development Tool is still missing. - Can you at least give us the Dataset back?

Report Inspector is really important to have.
It would reduce the time designing reaport dramatically, there would make Business Cenzral more competitive to other ERP Products.
Please implenet asap.

For the development of complex reports it is essential to be able to analyze the data.
Please do not put it into the "long term roadmap", we need it as soon as possible.

Fyi, this can serve as a workaround:

That's one of the biggest misses in BC16 right now. Please add the report inspector asap

Please provide this ASAP.
It is essential for developers.

It is also used in the analysis of permissions or correction. You need to be able to quickly determine the ID of an object (report).
We need this again really quickly!

This needs to work for Word reports as well as RDLC reports

Working in a post-windows client world, developers can't debug RDLC errors - nothing is displayed in "Last error".
Hope to see this fixed in 2020.
