The problems are in a cross tab report.  I commented out the lines causing the compilation errors and I was able to compile and also get the designer working but of course the cross tabs don't work properly now.  Could you provide the code I could use to replace the errors manually in the designer .cs file So I can salvage the report?

thanks much

Hi Jonathan,

The reason for the compilation errors is that there had been obsolete types which were completely removed in the latest Q1 2013 release. The changes are described in the release notes as 'obsolete types removed'. What is changed is the namespace of the types in which the word 'Data' is removed.

One approach to fix the errors is to open the designer.cs file and manually change the namespaces by replacing '.Data' with an empty string and the other is to downgrade the project to Q3 2012 version for instance and work with the designer - reopening the reports and making a small modification will automatically correct the code.

In general, obsolete properties are kept for a certain amount of time, so developers have time to react and update the report definitions according to the prompt messages and after that time the properties get removed so we can work further on the API.
