Linkage Service. "Arguments on the on the master must be actual columns". Why?

Mar 11, 2013 at 10:11 PM
The object pfc_n_cst_dwsrv_linkage.of_register performs the following validation

// Check to make sure they are columns.
ls_id = idw_master.Describe(as_masterarg+".ID")
If Not IsNumber(ls_id) Then Return FAILURE

The object pfc_n_cst_dwsrv_linkage.of_register allows non-column detail arguments to be registered, but not allows non-column master arguments to be registered. Can someone explain why?

Hard to say exactly WHY a particular thing is the way it is, since PFC goes back quite a ways.

I'll add an issue for it to be looked at.
