"Field does not exist in the Framework Manager model" running an "Import from Framework Manager" due to using ';' (semi-colon) as delimiter

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

User clicks "Transfer - External Data - Import from Framework Manager". User selects/chooses import specification. User clicks 'Run'.
After a short time (e.g. 2 seconds) an error appears.

Symptom

Information

Field does not exist in the Framework Manager model.
[OK]

Cause

There are several possible causes for the same screen message.

  • TIP: For more examples, see separate IBM Technote #1470842.

This Technote specifically relates to the scenario where the cause is a code production (reference APAR PM71333) problem in Controller.
  • This defect is only triggered when the Cognos BI CSV delimiter ("RSVP.CSV.DELIMITER") is configured to not be the default (TAB), for example instead it is a semicolon (;)

Resolving the problem

Fix:

Upgrade to Controller 10.1.1 FP1 (10.1.1671) or later.

Workaround:
Reconfigure RSVP.CSV.DELIMITER to be the default (TAB).

    Steps:
    For more information, refer to the Cognos BI Administration and Security Guide ("ug_cra.pdf"). For the sake of convenience, here is an extract (p667) from the 10.1.0 version:
      RSVP.CSV.DELIMITER
      The field delimiter character used for CSV output.
      Enter one of the following:
      ● a single character
      If you enter more than one character, only the first character
      is used.
      TAB (tab)
      This is the default value.
