If you expect an ongoing need to retain and analyze data from prior releases, ask your System Administrator to retain two sets of view and macro Data Definition Language (DDL) files in separate places. Rename the views and macros so that you can use either.

You could, for example, use ResNodeR12 as the name of the resource usage macro from an older release, and use it when you want to analyze the data from that release.
