Click OK twice to get back to the screen.

Next, Click on More > Permissions and set to Full Control for your user and click the checkboxes “Apply permissions to sub-folders” and “Apply permissions to items within folder” and click OK.

Once we are done with these two steps, we are good to open the report and it should run successfully as seen below:
