Error: Too many fields defined or Error: Record is too large in a batch

When automatically generating transactions in a batch in The Raiser's Edge, users may experience an error Run-time error '3190': Too many fields defined. This error is presented usually when there are too many attributes or gift notepads on the master recurring gift and/or pledge. It can also occur due to the amount of transactions being generated.

Other possible errors are:
  • Error: Run-time error: '3047':  Record is too large.
  • Error: Record is too large. (when opening the batch)
Users must use the Delete Multiple Batches feature to delete the single batch before successfully generating the transactions again.  
Break down the batch down into smaller sections of no more than 2000 gifts. If you have records that have a substantial amount of attributes and/or gift notepads and you are not hosted by Blackbaud, you can implement the following registry keys (per workstation, per user). These registry keys will ignore any gift note and/or attribute on the Recurring Gift when automatically generating transactions/payments. This means that a recurring gift's attributes and notes will not be inherited by its payments when pulled into a batch. 
  • HKCU\Software\Blackbaud\REINI_{X}\Batch\SkipNotes = "-1" (without the quotes)
  • HKCU\Software\Blackbaud\REINI_{X}\Batch\SkipAttributes = "-1" (without the quotes)
Where {X} is the database number for the Raiser's Edge database.

Note: Incorrect changes to registry settings can cause serious system problems that may be irreversible without reinstallation of the operating system. You must back up your registry before making any registry changes. We are not responsible for damage resulting from incorrect use of the Registry Editor.
