Solution - Fiber Manager - Report Error running Patch Panel Report

Version 3

    Behavior

     

    Executing the Patch Panel Connection Report generates a Select report item window requiring a valid selection.

     

    (the data used here is the sample Minerville data where the patch location is Greeley West High School)

     

    Clicking the <Select> button can result in the following error.

    The Report Error above is showing the top portion only.

     

    Cause

    If no fiber object is selected you will get the error. Selecting requires clicking at the desired fiber object level which then highlights the object. In the example below the Dev: Greeley West Switch has been selected.

    The error also appears if the fiber object level selected has not been configured for the Patch Panel Connection Report. For instance in Minerville the Patch Location (PL) feature class is not configured for this report; selecting PL: Greeley West High School results in the same error.

     

    Solution

    Running the Patch Panel Connection Report requires selecting a fiber object so its highlighted. The selection must also be a feature that has been configured for the Patch Panel Connection Report.

     

    Other causes for this Report Error

    If the object highlighted in Select report item is not configured for this report the error can occur. Error can also display if the selected object contains an object from another table that is also not configured for the Patch Panel Connection Report.
