3160547 - Dictionary import fails with no error - Attribute of type:number maximum value exceeded


After an Import of Dictionary items the Result Report Window displays, but there are no results.  When the report is downloaded, it just opens a new browser in Explorer view.  So, it would be nice if the report still generates and advises an error.

Additional information:

  • In this scenario, an attribute being imported was of data type: number, where it also had a maximum value defined in the Dictionary.
  • The import fails when that maximum value is exceeded, but there is no error message
