Description Frank Schönheit 2008-09-17 20:38:26 UTC
- open the attached database document
- open the contained report for editing
- execute the report from within the report designer
=> a message box pops up, saying "An error occurred while creating the report".
   There is a "More" button in this dialog, but pressing this just opens another
   dialog which does not have any useful information for the user.

The root cause is that the SQL statement which the report is based on is
invalid. In this case, it is "slightly" invalid in that the table which it
refers does not exist (anymore). However, the user is not given *any* clue about
this root cause.

Since the underlying objects (the RowSet, in particular) are well able to raise
a better error message, which helps the user in identifying the root cause, it
seems that this "better" error message is somehow lost. It should be propagated
to the user.
