"Field does not exist in the Framework Manager model" running an "Import from Framework Manager" due to using ';' (semi-colon) as delimiter
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.
Field does not exist in the Framework Manager model.
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
Upgrade to Controller 10.1.1 FP1 (10.1.1671) or later.
Reconfigure RSVP.CSV.DELIMITER to be the default (TAB).
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:
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
● TAB (tab)
This is the default value.
