Report Editor errors
Hey everyone. Have any of you ever seen this error while attempting to open a report in edit mode? I wrote the report myself and it's located in my personal environment. I've always been able to open it in edit mode before and I personally have made no changes so I don't know what is causing it. All other reports in the same area are opening in edit mode with no issue. I also moved it to the development folder and tried there and got the same error. Here is the error message:
Could not create editor: java.lang.NullPointerException
Unfortunately this happens regularly to me too. Most of the time this is because I made a change to the query used by the report. As an advice I would recommend to close the report editor before modifying its query. As a workaround which might work from time to time, make a copy of the report in another location and try again. Reporting features are quite good but there are plenty of bugs related to it.
