The steps i have taken are the following. It could be that the current user created reports will not work with 7.3, But Just in case I am doing something incorrect i thought i would throw this out there and see if I can get an answer. Any Help would be appreciated.
1. download the .zip file into the deploymnet folder loaction on the DWH server.
2. I open the IBM Cognos Administration and then try to import the report.
3. I select the name of the file i wish to import and then I recieve this error.
Log Into the Operational Servers WebUI using admin/admin123

Click on the "Launch" menu pull down, then select Report Studio
Select the Packages folder, Then select ANY package

Using Notepad open one of the downloaded storefront .txt report files, this is actually HTML code for the report. Within notepad press Control-A to select all the contents of the report txt file, Then Control-C to copy all the selected text
