MORE INFORMATION
This problem is most likely to occur if you create an application in PerformancePoint Planning Business Modeler. When you create an application in PerformancePoint Planning Business Modeler, the Create Application dialog box has no field that you can use to specify the locations for the following document types:
  • Form templates
  • Reports
  • Assignment forms
  • Assignment master forms
However, if you create an application in PerformancePoint Planning Administration Console, you can specify these document locations on the Edit Application page.

You may deploy Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 on multiple servers. In this situation, if you are a member of the Global Administrator role, we recommend that you perform tasks that are related to the Global Administrator role in PerformancePoint Planning Administration Console. Therefore, potential database problems can be avoided.

To use PerformancePoint Planning Business Modeler, members of the Global Administrator role must also belong to other administrative roles.
