2. Error is encountered.

Error: Line ###, column 22: The content of element type "comp-field-group" is incomplete, it must match "(comp-field-label+,comp-field-definition+)"


There is an empty grouping being detected by the system upon saving in your Design worksheet/Column designer.


Check all groupings and ensure that there are no empty groupings from your Design worksheet/Column designer.

If that specific group is no longer being used, you may delete that group, and then the worksheet will now save without the error.
