SharePoint: Report contains no data

This error can occur when viewing one of the usage reports / workflow reports in SharePoint simple if the report has no data (sounds obvious)! If you do need reports, you should ensure that relevant audit events are recorded (from the site settings page at the root of the site collection), although be aware that this will have implications on performance.

Note that with SPD workflows, audit logs are written out, but if you write a custom workflow through Visual Studio, you have to programmatically write out audit events.
