Resolving Corrupt DataMap in EngageOne Designer 6.0

Issue

Opening the data map in EngageOne Designer in builds earlier than 6.0.1564 can generate the error "object not set to an instance of an object"

Cause

Caused by deleting a data field alias in the data dictionary used by the data map.

Resolution

UPDATED: October 19, 2017
In builds later than 6.0.1564, deletion will not be permitted, and the corrupt data map now fails to open gracefully with a meaningful "Unable to open Data Map" Abort and giving the reason, instead of "Object Reference not set" crash.

Corruption can be fixed with a SQL script, please contact customer support quoting DOC-6633.
