Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When reverse engineering a text file with column headings in Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), the following error is reported in a popup:

ODI-15116: There is not enough data in the target file to proceed with the reverse-engineering. Please make sure the file has at least one non-empty line and number of rows to skip is correct.

The studio.log shows an out-of-range error:

[2018-05-25T09:25:01.917+02:00] [odi] [ERROR] [] [oracle.odi.core.persistence] [tid: 16] [ecid: ******************************,0] java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1[[
  at java.lang.String.(

When the text file has the column heading row removed, the reverse engineering works.
