ASKED AND ANSWERED

I have Microsoft® Access® reports and understand LexisNexis® will no longer support those reports. What does this mean for me?

Based on Juris user feedback, reporting is a top-three concern in 2020 and moving forward. Firm leadership and staff are focused on analyzing financials, compensation, productivity, and profitability.,

Juris Suite Reporting has the tools to help meet those reporting challenges.

To give Reporting our full attention and to optimize support responsiveness and services development, as of January 1, 2021, we will no longer support Access® reports. Access® is still an independent choice for firms. However, LexisNexis will no longer support the development of, modifications to, or troubleshooting of Access® reports.

This includes custom reports created specifically for your firm and reports included in the Juris Supplemental, Gold, and West Coast databases. Problems with reports, errors received due to ODBC or upgrading software, creation of new reports, edits of existing Access® reports, etc. are examples of what will no longer be addressed by the Juris Customer Support or Juris Professional Services teams.

We recommend that you switch to Juris Suite Reporting—the answer to all Juris Reporting needs. Every report from the Juris Supplemental, Gold, and West Coast databases are included in Juris Suite. A Reporting Engineer on the Juris Professional Services team can work with you to recreate your custom reports within Juris Suite Reporting.

With the release of Juris/Juris Suite version 3.0, the Reporting module has been completely redesigned to drastically improve the Reporting experience. Users now can change the sorting and grouping of an existing report by simply selecting the parameters needed, reducing the need for external reporting tools.

Over 90 reports have been added to the Juris Suite Reporting module and a new folder structure is in place to better organize the 1160-plus reports available.

Key Benefits of Juris 3.0 Reporting

Designed to improve efficiency in the areas that impact your firm the most, Juris 3.0 delivers a new collection of reports in Juris Suite Reporting.

Juris 3.0 makes it easier and faster to generate reports and provide even greater decision support. Access these helpful resources to learn how the Juris Suite Reporting module provides firm leaders a real-time view of the information they need to make more informed business decisions.

    Support ending for legacy Microsoft® systems

    The Juris support team is here to help make sure Juris performs at its best for your firm. Part of our mission is to ensure that Juris, Juris Suite, and Juris Go run optimally and seamlessly on the Microsoft® infrastructure your firm has installed.

    When Microsoft® ends support for its platforms, we also taper off our Juris support so we can focus on maintaining the latest software and keeping it up to date. As of December 31, 2020, Juris, Juris Suite, and Juris Go support will not be available for the systems listed below. If you are using any of this software, Juris Support will help you migrate your Juris software to a supported version.

    Note that Microsoft® will no longer issue security updates to these versions. Upgrading your infrastructure ensures that you are in compliance with the latest security standards.
