Object reference not set to an instance of an object msg after changing the Basic Company Layout

Hi there! I was just changing the Company layout on the Design Layout when I got the msg above. On the right hand side of the Design Layout there is a Divisions box that seems to be resident to the program. As our clients are not organized by divisions, I minimizd that box, and used the space underneath to add new field boxes. The Select Field window opened up, and after creating a new field, and adding to the field box, the error message appeared. It seems I am in a loop: I cannot closed down the Select Field window not can I create/select a field name for the open boxes. The rest of the program is not accessible before I close down the Select Field window...

 

Any ideas? Thanks!! Happy Holidays!!

This may be due to your Windows font size settings. If you are using a font size greater than 96 DPI, this could be causing the error. To reduce to font size:

 

Windows XP

- Close all open programs

- Right-click on your Desktop and select Properties

- Click on the Settings tab

- Click on the Advanced button

- Under the General tab, change the value for "DPI Setting" to Normal Size (96 DPI)

- Click Apply, then OK, then reboot your machine

 

Windows Vista

- Close all open programs

- Right-click on your Desktop on select Personalize

- In the upper left, click Adjust font size (DPI)

- Select Default scale (96 DPI)

- Click Apply, then OK, then reboot your machine
