I created a new report and when adding a field to the Detail section of the report I get this message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". Anyone know how to correct it?

How did you create the new report? Was it from scratch or by editing a standard report?

Do you mean the blank form with no fields or a copy of the contact report? Either way the likely problem is corruption in the template XML code. Can you run a standard report? If not make sure you have a printer driver installed.

Yes, I meant a blank form with no fields. I can run a standard report. I just can not add any fields when trying to edit a report template. I always get that same error. I am logged in as administrator.

Please provide more information. Does this happen with any field that you add? what field are you trying to add? Are you adding a contact field?

I am trying to add custom contact fields to the detail section of a re-saved blank contact report. I am not sure what other information I can provide; can you ask me more questions so we can get to the bottom of the problem?

What type of field, character, number, etc.?

That definitely sounds like a corrupted template. Have you tried starting with a new copy of the blank template?
