SYMPTOMS

When you use the TransferText macro action to export an HTML or text file using a specification table, you may receive the following error message:

The data being exported does not match the format described in the Schema.ini file.

CAUSE

The HTML or text file that you are trying to export contains field names that do not match the field names in the specification table. This will happen if you do not click to select the "First Row Contains Column Headings" check box when you create the specification table.

RESOLUTION

Click to select the "First Row Contains Column Headings" check box in the <'tablename'> Import Specification dialog box.

-or-

Change the names for the fields in the <'tablename'> Import Specification dialog box when you create the specification table so that the field names match the field names in the table you are exporting.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
