Hello Jeff,

I tried to view a sightings report and get the attached error message. When I click on "OK" BD shuts down. I'm using BD5.1 ver 101 and Windows 10. This happens on any sighting report I choose.

Help, Al Borodayko

Cypress, CA

Hi Al, Thanks for posting and for the screenshot. 

A couple questions:

  1. Does your UDF Need Better Photo still exist as a UDF?
  2. Are you choosing to output this UDF in your report? Is it listed as an output column?

 

If the UDF no longer exists, remove it from the output columns.

If it exists, and is selected as an output column; please remove it and test the report. If that works, then re-add this UDF as an output column and test again.

Thanks,

Jeff

My reports list Need Better Photo in the output column. I removed it and the report opened without the UDF. Then I closed the report and opened another one. That report opened. I was shocked that the Need Better Photo UDF was in the second report. So I re-opened the first report and this time the report opened with the Need Better Photo UDF as part of the report output.

I then realized I didn't save "Changes" when I deleted the UDF so the reports reverted to the original saved format.

Now the reports open properly. Guess the program needed a kick in the butt to get it's attention.

Anyhow, thanks for the help. All is good. The why is a mystery but that's your baileywick.

Regards, Al

Hi Al,

Not sure how that might have happened. But if you run into it again. Please post back here and we can try to chase it down.

Take care,

Jeff
