Topic: MR merge error #3049
We have an MR db with a large number of surveys. We needed to have a post-survey assessor work on biotope assignment for three of the surveys within the main db. The three surveys were copied to a separate db using the MR merge tool. The assessor worked remotely on this db, which I now need to merge back into the main db. I have ticked the 'overwrite all' option for all three surveys but get the following error message:
(window title) Module - ExportSurveyData
Debug - An error has occurred.
3049 - Cannot open database ".It may not be a database that your application recognizes, or the file may be corrupt.
The logfile ends:

which looks like a successful merge run, but the target db has no species records associated with any of the samples, and no biotopes (both of which exist in the remote db which is the source for the merge).
We are both using the same version of MR, and have the latest (Feb 2012) version of the Species Directory installed.
Any advice gratefully received! Thanks very much in advance...
