Symptoms: 

While loading data to a table that exists within the MDB, you may see messages of the following type:

"<table name>: No numeric or logical key"

"ERROR: Cannot create mapping for table (<table name>)"

"ERROR: skipping table"

 

Environment:  

All versions

 

Cause: 

The problem described above is seen most often when loading new data, i.e. data not previously unloaded from the MDB via e.g. pdm_extract.

The above messages occur because the data being loaded does not contain a (unique) UUID.

 

Resolution:

To resolve the problem, run pdm_load with the '-i' parameter, e.g.:

pdm_load -i -f <datafilename>

Note: For a complete description of the parameters available run the following:

pdm_load -h
