Please note the following issues:
We will be addressing these issues by migrating the site to newer/different technology in the near future. Thanks for your patience.
I'm trying to generate a report of a few columns (name, heard, date, country, and trip) on all of my sightings. The report works fine, but when I try to save to a text file, after the "Counting forms" pass and the "Rendering" pass, I get a message box titled "Error saving file" with the message "Overflow (6)". This happens on smaller (but still large) subsets of my sightings -- all since 2010, or all Passeriformes -- but if I choose a small enough set, such as one year, it works fine.
Interestingly, saving as RTF works, even though the resulting file is MUCH larger.
Can you explain what's overflowing and suggest any way to avoid it?
BINGO! I must be using a 2 byte integer for a counter somewhere in the Text output format.
Working to find the error and reproduce right now. I should have a fix in about an hour.
Sorry for this.
I will update here when ready.
Fixed in Build 99 - available now! Help | Internet: Check for a program update from Birder's Diary.
You must be the first ever in the history of BD to attempt to save a Sightings Report with > 32k sightings to Text format!!! Congratulations!!!
Thanks for finding the bug.
Take care and stay safe,
Thank you Judy! And uh-oh.
I wonder how that happened. I do have a couple other changes rolled into Build 99, but nothing that I remember in Reporting.
Can I get onto your computer to see this? In about 2 hours? I have to head out for a bit.
I am available until noon tomorrow CDT and then gone until Friday.
Please shoot me an email at support@BirdersDiary.com and let me know your availability.
