Ok I see what's going on. You are actually running the new Reporter processor but from the old Reporter front-end. I'll bet you have both #FILES and #CFILES defined. This could be a problem if they ever get out of sync. The old front-end uses #FILES. When you run QREPORTS it looks for the new #CFILES dictionary to determine if it should run the old Reporter or the new one. In your case you're using the old front-end to build reports based on #FILES but when you run the report it's going to use #CFILES to generate the report. You are living dangerously! Once you converted your #FILES to #CFILES you should have eliminated UTR from your directory list. The new Reporter is in UTL. Yes, this means you lose the old front-end but there is a new one. The new Reporter can still run your "$" reports but the new front-end uses only .ibr spec files. You can still use a CED-like editor to make changes to your "$" reports if you prefer. You can maintain #CFILES using the CFILES program. QFILES is only for #FILES.
