NOTE: Some users might experience problems with adding old reports to a publishing job. Although these would run fine in Reporting, they cannot be run in a publisher job, because this requires reports to be compatible with newer versions of OneStop Reporting. To remedy this, you must open the report in Report Designer, save it, and re-publish the report in Reporting.

If there are any issues with the definition version, you will see a warning icon in your template list.
