i am unable to generate pdf report using ExportReport function of Arcgis 10.2. getting error of IOError: Could not open report template

tried different template files but still getting this error. Template directory is correct. checked all the directory positions.


import arcpy
= arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"C:\Users\Abrar ahmad\Documents\ArcGIS\New_Rwp_Cencus(12-17-2014).mxd")
= arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd)[0]
for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "",df):
if == "New_Districts_5_without_limit":
.mapping.ExportReport(lyr,r"C:\Users\Abrar ahmad\Documents\ArcGIS\test.rlf",r"C:\Users\Abrar ahmad\Documents\ArcGIS\ProjectReport2.pdf","USE_RLF")
