Receiving the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
- Project Client error message that "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when ingesting multiple PDFs as compound objects
- Project Client
The most common cause of this error is when attempting to ingest multiple PDFs via Object List from a tab-delimited file while Convert PDF to compound object is turned on in the Project Settings Manager. Attempting to ingest smaller batches of PDF files or ingesting them one at a time is the only way to work around this limitation in the Project Client.
Additional troubleshooting steps if the above does not prevent this error:
- Reboot the computer to attempt to clear memory.
- Attempt to ingest again, and if the same error is received contact OCLC Support for additional assistance
