10.2.X -> 2021.2 It is possible to overwrite system RDDs with solution workbench

Version Any lower to newer version

If you have custom report styles that use system RDDs and you build a solution you can add the system RDDs to the solution and when you install on the latest version it will overwrite the newer system RDDs. In my case MtlTags, PartTranRpt and MtlQueue had additional tables or fields added.

Here is the fix provided by support that reruns part of the conversion.


Wow! :grimacing:

@utaylor Yes it was a fun few days. Going forward for us and I think I may have read here that someone always made a custom RDD if they were making a custom style even if there were no changes. Our style would have still blown up, but the standard would have worked and not gotten damaged.
