Today I stumbled across a strange error while adding some new performance point content to a web part. My task was to take 2 reports and add them to a score card, easy enough huh? Well the first report was added without causing any problems. As you might have guessed already the second report didn’t go so smoothly. I followed the exact same steps as the first report but I kept getting the following error messages, “Cannot save all of the property settings for this web part. An error has occurred” and “The selection is not a valid PerformancePoint filter.”
After a couple of attempts I gave Google a quick visit and stumbled across this blog. In this blog it gives us a quick fix as well as a link for a hotfix. What was happening is that the wrong path was being used in the location. After I changed the location the report was added without any further errors.
