Trapped Error Message

Postby jbajoie » Fri Sep 21, 2018 10:44 am

I been receiving this error message (noted below) when trying to add Haws quantities to my plan. I have retyped the notes in the excel sheet. For some reason in the excel sheet a text break is being added instead of wrapping the text. I've removed the text break but I am still not able to bring the quantities into my sheet.

error message received:
Start point for key notes table:
Trapped error: bad argument type: stringp nil

After talking on the phone, we determined the following:

1. You are using CNM v5.0.0.
2. There are line breaks in the notes in your CSV Project Notes file. As you mention above, this seems to be due to strange behavior in your spreadsheet program, Excel.
3. I was able to create a Key Notes Table on my computer running CNM v5.0.06. So apparently it can handle line breaks in notes.

You have two possibilities for resolution:

A. Remove all the line breaks from inside bubble notes in your Project Notes. You did this today to resolve your immediate issue.
B. Upgrade CNM

Does my summary sound right to you?
