  • You'll get this error when you try to call a method or access a property on a null object. You'll need to collect more information about what fails to be able to fix it.

    Is the problem only with a single report? Do you get the same problem in Visual Studio? Debugging there should be easier.

  • Hi guys

    In my experience I solved this issue by running a Full Cil compilation.

    Finally, in some cases I have also stop AOS, delete the XppIL folder, start AOS and running a Full CIL

    Also, in the past I have installed the KB 2720601 for a similar problem.

  • Does it happens with all AX reports? Try to re-deploy the BIServices Service Group from AOT.

  • Try

    1. Open AX as Admin

    2. Restore and deploy the report

    3. Restart  Reporting service

    If it doesn't work,

    Try restarting AOS.
