Hyperion Financial Data Quality Management - Version: 11.1.1.3.00 to 11.1.1.3.00 - Release: 11.1 to 11.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Navigation or editing of Maps causes an "Error While Parsing Entity Name" or "Application Error"

Cause

Mappings that exist in the currently displayed web-grid contain invalid characters.  Most notibly by users importing their trial balance into the Maps screen.

Solution

Navigate to the Maps to find out if invalid characters do exist.  They include the following characters:
& * ( ) / \ ' "

If the trial balance was imported into the Maps then the Description column (called SRCDESC) in the database should be populated with:
Conversion Table

Have the DBA execute a query in the FDM Database against the tDataMap table to delete any rows where the description is called "Conversion Table"

*** As with any DB modifications outside of the software product, ensure proper change controls are followed and a backup of the DB is performed prior. ***
