Error when reloading document in QMC

Hello

Hoping someone can help.  I am having a problem when trying to reload a document using the QMC.  If I reload the document on my local desktop it works fine.  I moved the document to the server and opened it through the desktop and it reloaded with no problems.  However as soon as I try to reload via the QMC I get a General Script Error.

The document is using the wildcardmapping document taken from Rob Wunderlich's Cookbook.  I have adapted the wildmap table to my specific needs and am mapping to a qvd located on the server (paths to the qvd are correct)

The error in the log file is below, which doesnt make sense to me as the script works fine when reloading on desktop

Error: Error in expression:

       ')' expected

      General Script Error

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

Peter, thanks for your suggestion.  I tried what you suggested but that didnt work, however it got me thinking about characters in the tables.  It turns out that in my inline table , one of the fields contained an apostrophe. Taking this out made it run fine in QMC.  never really thought about that being an issue as it ran fine with the apostrophe outside of QMC.

Thanks again.

Difficult to comment on, if you don't post at least the offending part of your script.

Are you using $-sign substitution somewhere?

Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

nizam, thanks for response.  The semi colon is there and if I take away the preceding load it works fine reloading from QMC wit hte script as is.  Also, even with the script as it is , it loads fine reloading from desktop.  Its been bugging me for days so far!

Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

Duncan,

The difference between your reload and QMC reload is that you're reloading as yourself as Windows user, while QMC is reloading as QV service user.  I suspect that the service account doesn't have access to the network location

Re: Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

the only parts in the script are the inline table and variable creation (together they make the variable used in the preceding load as per Robs cookbook) then load the table above with preceding load.  If I take out the parts before this table it will error out as this part creates the variable used in the preceding load.

I have attached Robs original document which shows the flow of the script and I have just changed the inline table and the final table to which its mapped to.

Re: Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

Michael

I have other documents that load fine using QMC and even this one reloads okay through QMC if I take out the preceding load.  So its something to do with the preceding load, but I dont know what as it works fine outside of QMC!!

Re: Re: Error when reloading document in QMC

I tried your application, and it reloads fine in my test Server.  Didn't remove the preceding load.

I'm using 11.20 SR5.
