[SOLVED] IBIF_max_messages

A user is getting this error: "Reporting Server messages exceeded IBIF_max_messages, report retrieval aborted. This message occurs when the user attempts to run a web-focus report. A JAVA screen for user selections suppose to come up and the user selects the report. It is not even getting to the selection screen before the error occurs. Counties are upgrading their computers will this cause the above error? Has anyone else experience this problem? If so, how can this be fixed?

Thanks,
Jeanette

Also if you will do a search on the Forum with that exact phrase you will see a bunch of ideas - and also on the tech site. Unfortunetly this could mean a lot of things.

In my experience the most common reason is that FEX code output exceeded the IBIF_max_messages limit. If this is the case, one solution is to make sure that &ECHO is set to OFF.

That is such an annoying problem to run into!
If it would show the messages up to where the limit got exceeded, you'd at least have some idea what's going on... Unfortunately, all you get is "The limit got exceeded" and you have to guess why.

The message is even less helpful than IE's "A javascript error occurred at line n in <some output I won't be specific about>" (which is one of the reasons why most web-developers develop in other browsers before trying their code in IE).

I opened a case about this a while ago, don't know the status.

Depending on the cause of the max messages error you can look in the edaprint. As the messages sometimes appear there.

Along with Waz's suggestion of turning &ECHO off, turn Messages off also.

SET MSG = OFF.

If you are running the report with Developer Studio select "Message Viewer OFF" from the run drop down arrow.

Thanks for all the support. The client's profile was not added to the fex that checks the person's ID. Basically, the program went into an endless loop. Thanks, the mystery is solved.
