2682191 - Error When Mapping Report Field and Screen Field in Embedded Report


You have created an embedded report, and when you try to map some fields, like for example 'Sales Quote' parameter (UUID of quote) and the 'Sales Quote(*)', you get an error:

'Report field (Sales Quote) does not match screen field (Sales Quote (*))'.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales work center.
  2. Go to the Sales Quote view.
  3. Open Sales Quote XYZ (XYZ represents the Sales Quote ID).
  4. Switch to adaptation mode.
  5. Edit the embedded report you have created.
  6. Map the sales quote parameter (UUID of quote) with the field sales quote.

You will receive the following error:

Report field (Sales Quote) does not match screen field (Sales Quote (*)).


The error is raised because the chosen fields (in this example Sales Quote parameter (UUID of quote) and field Sales Quote(*) do not fit structurally together (not compatible together).

E.G. Field ABC is of type Identifier and Field DEF is of type Code. Even if these fields have the same name they cannot be mapped together.


This is the correct behavior. Usually there are other fields which you can use for mapping.

For example, you can achieve your goal (embedded report display data related to the sales Quote only) by mapping fields sales Quote ID and  ID (-).

Add the sales Quote ID to the report view and save the personalization, then both fields will be available for mapping when you edit the embedded report in the adaptation mode.
