    The oleActivate DXL perm does not active an OLE object in a
    column if the object contains object text instead it threw
    the error "OLE index specified is invalid"
    

Problem conclusion

  • Root Cause:
    The index of the ole object to be activated was validated
    for correctness prior to activation. But the validation
    function was verifying the ole's in object text attribute
    rather the attribute corresponding to the column. For
    example, if i had one ole as a part of my object text and
    two other oles in a column whose attribute definition is
    text then the perm oleActivate(current Object, column 2, 1)
    would fail because the ole index is verified on the object
    text (which is 1) rather than the attribute pointed by the
    column (which is 2).
    
    Fix:
    The index of OLE objects in the attribute pointed by the
    column is validated now.
