APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Exporting to Word from DOORS where the module contains large or
    complex OLE objects can cause the export to abort with clipboard
    errors. The behavior in DOORS 9.2.0.3 differs from version
    before this in that previous releases would always complete
    although OLE objects may have been missing.

    ****************************************************************
    During an export to Word, large OLE objects are cached and
    kept in the memory until the export is complete. Export
    process is halted if memory is exhausted due to large OLE
    objects.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Word exporter is updated such that it doesn't keep the large
    OLE objects in memory for the lifetime of export process.
