Users may want to export Actions that are related to a Gift with a linked Proposal, and may experience the Error: Type Mismatch when exporting actions from a gift with a linked proposal.
This is resolved in 7.96 patch 13, released in September - October 2018 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.
In previous versions: Remove any field from "Linked Action" from the constituent export and you will not encounter the error.
Steps to Duplicate
1. Create a new constituent export and include "All Records" 2. Expand the gift node 3. Expand the Linked Proposal node 4. Expand the Actions node 5. Double click on 'Category' 6. Put 1 in the field asking "For each Constituent, enter the number of Gifts to export:" select OK. 7. Another window should pop up and put 1 in the field asking "For each Gift, enter the number of Proposals to export:" Select OK. 8. The final window should pop up and put 1 in the field asking "For each, enter the number of Actions to export:" Select OK. 9. Click on "Export Now" 10. Name the file, choose the destination, and save. 11. "Error: Type Mismatch" appeared after the export started to run
Note: This is one example of the criteria that can be used to get the error message, but it can be duplicated using any of the options related to a linked action.
