Running the street changes file displays an error "At least one change request had a fatal error".

Article created: Mar 29 2006, updated: Jan 28 2013

Background:  Intersection Magic version 6.6.8.4 introduced new functionality to protect your data from incorrect entries in your streets changes file. The program will not process your street changes file when a problem is detected.

Status:  Info - functionality description
Keywords:  changes,fatal,error,street,request,good,bad
Categories:   *Importing* *Errors / crashes* *Data*

Explanation:

When running the street changes process the error "At least one change request had a fatal error Please see C:\MAGIC\YOUR_CONFIG\STCNG*.LOG for FATAL ERROR messages" is displayed. This error is caused by the program finding a street in your street changes file that has been defined as both a good street, and a bad street.

 

The street changes file is a user created text file that contains two streets per line separated by a comma. The first street name on the each line is the bad street name. This is the name of the street that you would like to change. The second street name on each line is the good street name. This is the name that you would like the street to be changed to. Example of a street changes file:

 

BAD STREET NAME,GOOD STREET NAME

ANOTHER BAD STREET NAME,"ANOTHER GOOD STREET NAME"

 

 

When the street changes process is run, Intersection Magic scans through the streets in the database. The program finds all of the accident records with streets named "BAD STREET NAME", and changes the name to "GOOD STREET NAME". The program will then repeat the process for the each line in your street changes file. Once all of the names in the database have been changed, Intersection Magic will delete the all of the bad street names from the database.

 

Incorrect entries in the street changes file can define a street name as good and bad. An example is show below:

 

BAD STREET NAME,GOOD STREET NAME

ANOTHER BAD STREET NAME,"ANOTHER GOOD STREET NAME"

GOOD STREET NAME,BAD STREET NAME

 

Intersection Magic will now detect that a street is listed as a good street and a bad street. No street names will be changed, and the program logs the problems in the street changes log file.



Solution:

As of version 6.6.8.4 Intersection Magic will detect the invalid entries to your street changes file and log the problem street in your street changes log. The log file location and name will be displayed in the error message that you received.

 

To correct your street changes file open your street changes log in the Intersection Magic edit window. Lines in the log file with FATAL ERROR: will have the problem street name. This is the street name that has been defined as a good street and a bad street. Now open your street changes file and search for all the lines that contain the problem street name. Correct and save your street changes file. Backup your database and then run your corrected street changes file.
