Error description

  • If you run document generation using a 9.5.2.1 client with a
    given database/user, and then attempt the same with the same
    database/user but a 9.6.1.4 client, you will get the following
    DXL and be unable to perform the export:
    
    "
    -R-E- DXL: <standard/export/RPE_Light/DoorsExport.inc:2155> null
    DialogDefaults parameter was passed into argument position 1
    Backtrace:
    	<C:\Program
    Files\IBM\Rational\DOORS\9.6/lib/dxl/standard/export/RPE_Light/r
    pe_to_word.dxl:19>
    -I- DXL: execution halted
    -R-E- DXL: <standard/export/RPE_Light/DoorsExport.inc:2155> null
    DialogDefaults parameter was passed into argument position 1
    Backtrace:
    	<C:\Program
    Files\IBM\Rational\DOORS\9.6/lib/dxl/standard/export/RPE_Light/r
    pe_to_word.dxl:19>
    -I- DXL: execution halted
    "
    
    To recreate:
    
     - login to a given database with a 9.5 client and export a
    module using File;Export;Document Generation;Export...
     - attempt to do that same with the same database and user but
    using a 9.6.1.4 client
    
    Workaround:
    
    Either manually remove the file "userLastRPEExportFolder.txt"
    from the users conf area, or do so using DXL such as:
    
    "confDeleteFile("userLastRPEExportFolder.txt", confUser)"
    
    That will remove the previous settings for the template and
    target directory, but the export will work.
