When using Drawing Registers (XLS/CSV) for plotting, there can be some fairly ambiguous error messages when things aren’t quite right. Below are some of the common errors sent to the Output Window.
error: Unable to find row!
“Unable to find drawing in register” – This occurs when there is no matching Drawing Number (Plot file stem) in the drawing register.
error: Invalid connection string
“No drawing register defined in PPF” – Not to be mistaken for a ‘String’ in 12d Model, this error occurs when the Title Block File (TBF) has variables that refer to a drawing register, but the XLS/CSV has not been selected in the PPF.
error: 07002 [Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 1.
Title block>Drawing register – In the grid, a value in the Name column is not correct/cannot be found in the XLS.
