Error while converting a summary report to a list report



For Reports that exist in a class other than Work, when you try to convert a summary report to a list report from the Report Viewer window, it displays the error message even if the pyLabel property is not referred to in the report.

Error Messages

InvalidReferenceException .pyLabel Unexposed properties cannot be selected for classes mapped to external tables

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Summary type report in a non-Work class.
  2. Check the Disable drill down.
  3. Run the report.
  4. In the Report Viewer tab, try converting the report  to List.
  5. The error message is displayed.


Whenever a summary report is converted to a list report from the Report Viewer, pyDefaultReport is called and, therefore, it includes its column in the list report.
Copy (Save As) pyDefaultReport into the class mapped from the external table.
