Olap Save As - (Won't overwrite existing named report, but creates a second one).

The Olap Save As feature will not overwrite the same named report,
rather it creates a second report with the exact same name. This is
confusing because unless you are an admin you can't tell which one is
the newest since it won't tell you the day and times reports are

Use Case:

Open existing Olap report, and add a field from dimension tabs.
Use Olap Save As option, select folder report currently resides and select report so it retains same name, click ok/save.
Then refresh splash screen, you now have two Olap reports with same name.

    Hi Lu. Two questions:

    1. Is this still occurring for you?
    2. Did you ever open a PMR regarding this with IBM? If so, do you happen to have the PMR#?
