What To Do

WARNING:: Project projname is not found in this Repository

The postmerge utilities exclude certain Tools projects from UI Navigation cleanup. One of the excluded projects was not found in the repository.

Action: None required.

WARNING:: Ignoring Screen View Record. View Definition Not Found [View: Account Briefing View]

The utility is unable to read the view definition to determine where it should display.

Action: Remove the invalid screen view record that references the invalid view.

WARNING:: Error Writing Category Record, Ignoring Changes [Name: catname]

The utility could not update or insert a record in the Siebel Database. Possible causes are that the record already exists or there is a database access problem.

Action: Verify that a duplicate catname record does not already exist, and then check database access.

WARNING:: Error Writing Screen View Record, Ignoring Changes [View: viewname]

The utility could not create a screen view record. Possible cause is that the category does not exist. This error is often a consequence of an error updating or inserting a category record.

Action: Verify that the screen view category exists, and then check database access.
