Common Merge Module Issues

If you are having problems it would be a good idea to check that you have the latest version of the vendor's merge module as they may have fixed some bugs (if you're lucky!).

The following are what relatively common issues related to merge module inclusion (see the "MergeModule" command):

  1. Cannot open database file - System error
  2. Merge Succeeds But Heaps of Validation Errors Produced
  3. Merge Fails with Error Message(s)
  4. Language Mis-match!
  5. Schema Mismatch caused by a Merge Module
  6. Files Go into ROOT (can't be redirected)
  7. Merge Module needs Configuration

If the above did not help don't forget:
