Object reference not set to an instance of an object Error

I received this error message when I tried importing a file: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Below is the profile I have set up, which I copied and pasted from NotePad since it wouldn't open any other way, and won't attach. I have also attached the excel spreadsheet I tried importing.


Thank you!

Hi Flora,

I am sorry you are encountering a more complicated issue! In order to properly assist you with this particular issue, I will need to examine the following files: error.txt file, data file, and the IOM profile being used for this import. Please send these files to Support@omaticsoftware.com so that I can better assist you with your issue. When I have a resolution, I will post to this thread. 


To send your IOM profile, please follow these steps: 

* Go to IOM Configuration 
* Highlight the name of the profile you are using 
* Right click on it and choose to export 
* Send the .xml file that is created 

* It will be named in this fashion: IOM_Profile_Export_.xml

Thanks!

Tiffany

 

We've started getting this error as well after upgrading to v3.3.1.1 - all records in the import file are failing with the "Object reference not set to an instance of the object". I have created Blackbaud Case 13364816 for this and submitted the files above.
Thanks Sharifa,

Those steps seem to have solved our problem for our first import profile - yay!

If we run into the same problem with any of our other imports, we'll try this first and see if it resolves the issue.

Thanks again for your help!
I had this exact same error message after upgrading to v. 3.3.1.2 last night. I opened up every one of my dictionaries and resaved them and now everything seems to be working perfectly.

Thanks!
