Error description

  • Problem
    Customer has a problem while exporting a project to RIF, the err
    or 'could not export open module '?Link module name?' ' occurs d
    uring the export. You can then see a lock on the link module. Af
    ter all this, if you try to quit DOORS you get an EXCEPTION_VIOL
    ATION error. This seems to be caused by a layout DXL converted i
    nto a DXL attribute. If you remove the DXL attribute the export
    works fine.
    
    To Reproduce
    - create a source and target module
    - link from source to target
    - using the analysis wizard in the target module, report on inli
    nks from the specific source and link modules. Display only the
    obj identifier
    - convert the layout DXL to attr DXL. Save.
    - remove the layout DXL column
    - insert your newly created DXL attribute in a column and save a
     view called 'RIF'
    - close all open modules
    - create a RIF definition in the parent project
    1) Create the RIF definition with source module + current versio
    n + no lock + Standard view
    2) Create the RIF definition with target module + current versio
    n + no lock + RIF view
    3) Create the RIF definition with the link module
    - export the REF definition
    
    Error: 'could not export open module 'DOORS Links''

    Exporting a RIF definition fails with an error:
    Could not export module "xxxxx" - module is currently open
    
    or:
    Could not export open module "xxxxx"
    
    This happens if the Project that the RIF definition is
    stored in is not the current Project.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed RIF export to use the correct Project for the
    definition instead of the current Project.
    

Temporary fix
