I am not sure this is the right forum for the question. If not, let me know.
I was trying to use the OCDataImporter to upload a study in tab delimited format. I created the CRF, and the basic settings in the program seem OK. However, running the program will break and throw a null exception. Basically, the XML file is generated until it reaches a specific point where it breaks, with the message:
Exception while reading data file: System.NullReferenceException: Object
Object reference not set to an instance of an object at OCDataImporter.Form1.DoWork ()
The point is that each data item has a value in my spreadsheet (i.e. no nulls), and I do not understand what causes this exception to be thrown. Any tips are appreciated.
2) The OCDataImporter requests some time stamps: date of birth, date, study date. My dataset does not have some of these. I am wondering if the importer will (eventually) break because of that. This is not related to the exception mentioned above, however.
