some time ago I created a report that gets run only once a year. Since
I first created
the report I have switched to a new PC. At that time I copied over all
of my reports.
I installed IM5 on my new machine and copied over all of my reports.
when I went to run it I noticed that I had forgotten to copy to copy a
necessary DB profile. I now need to run this report again, but when I
try to open it I get a "could not open report check that your database
is correct" error message. If I could see the report I could probably
recreate the correct DB-PROF entry. Is there a way to see
the report even when I am not connected to the correct database?

You can always see the report, but not modify its select statement. I'm
guessing, but the old report was created in IM4 and was never properly
converted to IM5. In that case you would have a problem.
Your best bet is to recreate the database profile.
