Resolving Corrupt DataMap in EngageOne Designer 6.0

Software Affected: EngageOne Designer


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"


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


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.
