    Steps to replicate the behavior:
    ========================
    1-Launch a DOORS 9.6.1 Client and either use an existing Module
    or create a DOORS module.
    2-Create 2 New Attributes.
    3-Close the "Edit/add Attribute" dialog.

    5-Select the first Attribute that you would have created. Click
    on Edit and change the name and click OK.
    6-Next, select the second Attribute that you would have created.
    Click on Edit.
    
    Expected behavior:
    ===============
    We should be able to edit the second Attribute.
    
    Actual behavior:
    =============
    The following DXL error is displayed and you would not be able
    to Edit the second Attribute.
    -R-E- DXL: </standard/column/AttributeGenericDialog.inc:1920>
    null
    attribute definition parameter was passed into argument position
    1
    Backtrace:

Local fix

  • After you edit the first Attribute, close the DOORS "Edit/add
    Attribute" window and open it afresh.
    This would allow you to edit the second Attribute.
