    That is weird, could be a thing in the report builder. Maybe possible to try newer version of the report builder?

    It's a customized report, I converted a report from C/AL to AL using "ForNavConverter" software, eg: (Update Inventory) report name and i imported into BC, and i save this report .rdl while i open this report via report builder a new report is creating like Update Inventory - Backup (New Report Name)

    Its weird that its creating new report. are you sure? Check caption of the report.
    Look at the report object what does it say in rdlclayout property?

    Hello,
    did you save it before, with an older version of the report builder?
    If you open an rdl file with an newer Version, a backup file is created. So you can access the backup file with an older version.

    I think it's the same as described here:

    It's not happening for the first report, if i open the backup report the same issue occurring with the same name like "inventory report - backup - backup" its creating a new report like this is there is any way to avoid the creation of duplicate report or i need to open report in report builder with some other versions

    So what happens, after you save that report? If we take your example, with report 1.
    You open report 1 -> save it. Open report 1 again, does it still create a backup file?
