Error in Job Data When Deleting Two Rows Without Saving Them: "First Operand of . is NULL, so Cannot Access Member JOB (180,236) JOB.EMPLID.RowDelete" (Doc ID 1400804.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When deleting more than one Job Data row in correct history mode without saving in between, the system displays an error:

First operand of . is NULL, so cannot access member JOB. (180,236) JOB.EMPLID.RowDelete

The first operand of the dot operator is the NULL value, indicating the lack of any object value. As a consequence, the given method or property cannot be used.

The scenario below is also fixed in HCM 9.1 Bundle #10:

If an employee contains only one row in Job Data page and upon trying to delete it, the above error is generated. The actual message which should be displayed is:

"Cannot Delete the only row for this Person. Use the ID Delete Component to delete a person. (1000,804).

You cannot delete all the rows for a Person's Personal Data or Job. Either modify the remaining row if you wish to keep the person or use the ID Delete component if you wish to delete them."
