DOORS issue with richTextWithOle function

 Hello All,.

I am facing an issue when using the richTextWithOle function, I am always getting error: "incorrect arguments for function".
I have found in the release notes for that it was fixed, but I am still getting the error. Also I couldn't find the solution for this issue. It blocks me to move to the new version of DOORS, we are currently using
note: the same code is working fine in
If you have any idea how to fix this problem, could you please share the same.

Thank you,

richTextWithOle() is used to obtain either the RTF of an attribute value, including any OLEs, or the same for a specific column. There are two valid variants:

"string richTextWithOle(Attr__)"
"string richTextWithOle(Column,Object)"

The message suggests you are trying to pass a parameter which does not match these definitions.

The "Attr__" type should be in the form "Object.string" where the string is the attribute name e.g.

Object o = current
string s = richTextWithOle (o."Object Text")
