CTRL+F Usage:

The CTRL+F keystroke that advances the user to the next entry field in the Description Tab of the CSR is not functioning.

This is caused when a space is inserted between the adjoining greater than/less than <> brackets in the Application/CSR Template. Access the template which is failing, and verify that no spaces exist between the two brackets.

Deleting CSRs:

Is there a way to delete CSRs from the environment?

With proper security rights, you can use the CSR Purge Wizard to permanently delete CSRs from the Stat Repository.

Before deleting a CSR, however, it is recommended that you first use the wizard to export the CSR to a file for backup purposes.

Deleting Objects and Archive Sets from CSRs:

How do I delete objects and archive sets from existing CSRs?

Please contact Quest Software Support for instructions on how to proceed.

CSR Locks:

After logging in to Stat, opened an existing CSR and received the following message: “This message has been locked by...”

This warning message indicates that the CSR is locked by the user noted in the message. You will also receive this error message when a user closes Stat and fails to close the CSR first. Ensure that all CSRs are closed prior to closing Stat. Not doing so will not remove the lock status in the environment and will cause this warning message to appear when another user tries to access the CSR.

The Read Project, Read CSR, Read File, and Add Objects buttons are greyed out in the Objects tab

The CSR current workflow status may have Disable Object Activities rule, To verify that

Check if Disable Object Activities rule listed.
If you do not want to use this feature then Disable Object Activities option needs to be unchecked at the workflow level. Changes will be effective on new CSRs. Changes made now will not affect existing CSRs.

Stat Web


For users running the Stat Central Agent on Unix, graphical workflow diagrams do not display properly in Stat Web.

This problem may occur when either:

The solution to the second case is to start the Stat Central Agent in a background mode through the telnet session. To do this, execute the following command:

./ &

Archiving and Migrating


Base Archive Sets:

Base archive set status remains stuck in In Process.

First, verify that the objects in the Base archive set are from the Base Object Source (Base Final). Also, verify that you selected the All on Migration Path radio button in the Lock in Environment box on the Objects tab in the PeopleSoft Change Management window.

A base archive set may remain in process if:

Any objects are locked in another CSR (for example, you have a reservation for an object in the Base database)

The Stat Central Agent lost connectivity to the environment and/or the network

There are no objects that can be archived for the base environment on the CSR.

Receive the following error in the archive log for PeopleSoft:

“Error creating SQL - [ERROR] Database is not available, please check db info”.

Go to Maintenance | General | Peoplesoft Connect.

If you are getting error verify connection error--io exception: unknown host specified driver: oracle or verify connection error--listener refused the connection on the Central Agent Results, check the hostname, service name and db listener port settings in the Peoplesoft Connect window.

Receive a CSR error when migrating forms fmb object types.

When changing the printer (File | Print Setup) to generic text only, the font for the open description on CSRs changes to Roman 10cpi. This is the only available font listed until changing the printer back and re-opening the CSR.

Unfortunately, Stat has no control over font displays. This is a function of Windows. Similar behavior occurs in Microsoft Word.

Receive the following error message from the Stat Central Agent when printing a scheduled report “-9 error opening print job in Stat Central Agent scheduled report”

Verify that the printer to which you are trying to print your scheduled job exists on the machine where the Stat Central Agent is running. Also verify that the Host Printer name on the Stat Central Agent matches the printer name on the machine. For more information on the Stat Central Agent Printers, see Chapter 6, Configuring the Stat Central Agent .
