1420593 - Error: "PubExtension threw an exception. (FBE60405)..."

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a publication that uses both a post processing extension and a personalization profile.
  2. Run the report.

The exception occurs.


The issue has been identified and logged under Problem Report ID ADAPT01319019.

This is caused by a known issue where saving a report client document during post processing causes it to purge the parameter values.

After setting the current value of a 'non-data' parameter in a report with saved data, the formula referencing to the parameter wasn't re-evaluated. Although it's not necessary to change the parameters for this issue to occur, it is caused by the same problem with ReportClientDocument.Save() removing them.


Do not call ReportClientDocument.Save() after setting the parameters, just call Close() when done with it.
