Universe corrupted


My Universe is corrupted. I deleted a universe from the repository and now i cannot open it. I received error "You are not authorized to use this document (FRM 00008)". Then i follow the below solution

1. Create a universe on your local machine as TEST.unv

2. go to options then insert.

3. Find the local copy of your universe that you having problems with.

4. This should then open up as a second universe connection showing all the tables and connections.

5. Then goto to File > parameters then in the links tab click your universe then click include then Ok.

I get the error "This universe to be linked belongs to the another repository. The link cannot be done. (DSG0086)." when try to link the old universe with the new universe. Please help me make this universe work again, i forget to do a back up for this universe.

Thank you

    Follow these steps..

    To work around this issue:

    1. Make a new universe with specific name (Eg. TEST).

    2. Export it and save it on the local computer.

    3. Copy the name of the TEST universe and delete the TEST universe from the local computer.

    4. Rename the corrupted universe with the TEST.unv name.

    5. Open the TEST.unv from the local computer in Designer.

    6. Export the universe

    7. Import the universe again to get the corrupted universe data.

    • Hi,

      as you said you have deleted the universe and connection from the cmc but sure you have the local copy of the universe somewhere in the local system. so try to create same connection with some test universe and export in the cmc. after that open the local copy and map the connection and export it..

      May be it will work for you.
