 This solution describes how to resolve the error: Error: CDataObjectHelper init method must be called before using gift object 
                      Occurs when a date is specified on an attribute included in an RE default set applied to an IOM profile

Environment: All


This issue is related to attributes mapped in a default set in use in the profile, having a date specified. Removing the date allows the import to process successfully.

This issue will be resolved in a future build. In the meantime, the suggested alternative solution is to remove the date from the attribute on the default set and add a column to the data file and profile in the same position. The date must be populated within the data file.
