An error message is shown when you try to save a CALE-Object after renaming a calendar event, in case a calendar event of the same name (but in a different calendar) is referenced by a group event.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. create Calendar with name CALENDAR1

  2. in CALENDAR1 create event (type weekly) for Monday and name it as MONDAY

  3. create Calendar with name CALENDAR2

  4. in CALENDAR2 create event (type weekly) for Monday and name it as MONDAY

  5. in CALENDAR2 create event (type weekly) for Tuesday and name it as TUESDAY

  6. in CALENDAR1 create event (type group) with name MONDAY_AND_TUESDAY and add event Tuesday and Monday from calendar CALENDAR2 

  7. rename calendar event MONDAY to MONDAY1 in CALENDAR1

  8. click 'Save'

  9. get error message "Calendar: 'CALENDAR1' cannot be calculated or can only be partially calculated due to calendar events with invalid states or to broken links (caused by renamed/deleted calendar events or by imported calendars). The affected calendar events have been sent to the message window, message ID: 11882."

The issue affects versions 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3.



Release : 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3



Workaround: go into the GROUP or OFFSET calendar event(s) and undo the renaming before saving the calendar
