Good afternoon,

We are aware that users are experiencing issues when requesting Cognos reports, despite
refreshing the report request or starting a new session.  We are also aware that some users
are able to generate reports, but only after several attempts.  Users are reporting a
"Can't display page" error message while trying to run reports and/or while trying to
return to the Home Page on the Cognos portal.

Please be assured that Support staff are working to resolve the issue.

completion, by following the instructions in the attachment provided in this bulletin.

We apologize for the inconvenience and any impact on you or your customers.

Thank you,
