    Just upgraded to GP2018 R2 from GP2015 R2 and the Purchasing users are receiving an error viewing Purchase Orders.

    The error is
    Unhandled script exception
    Illegal address for field 'loca field in script 'OpenWindow',. Script terminated.

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    Hi @Jeff Roe

    Couple of things to check:
    Make sure all prior third parties or VB fields were brought over in the upgrade and installed correctly
    Make sure the user has permissions to all of the Modified forms

    Any of that fails, check out @David Musgrave's blog on error messages, you may find something useful:

    @Jeff Roe

    If you are using a modified version of the window or an alternate version of the window go back to the original version and check it works.

    If Alternate failing, contact the developer of the product that the alternate version is from.

    If Modified, then you can try updating the modified form via Dynamics Utilities. If that does not fix it, you might find it ​worth while to cut and paste any VBA scripts for the window and remake the modifications to fix the window.

    Regards

    David

    PS: The article that Jo mentioned is more specific to Dexterity developers and their alternate windows.

    Quick update, we resolved the issue by resetting the permissions on the GP2018 folder and re-applying all modified and 3rd party forms.
