I have generated a ARIS default macro to call a report and the context of macro is "Event" and the option selected is "Object created".

When i execute the macro from the editor, the execution happens properly. When i create an object in a model, the macro is executed, but throws an error at the time of report calling.

The error is:

"Invalid start objects"

 "Unable to start script"


The context of both report and macro is "Object".

Please help me to resolve this problem.

This post is related to the post "Calling a Report from Macro".

When we create a SAP function, a window appears displaying the properties to be entered.

In the similar manner, i want to build a customized window asking for the additional information from the user when an object is created.

The process i am following is - 

1. When an object is dragged and dropped in a model, an event is triggered which executes a   macro(By default ARIS context "event"). 

2. The macro inturn calls a report.

3. In report, a window is displayed to user asking for the information of an object - for ex like Name, Description, Identifiers etc. The entered info is set as attributes for that object.

Step 2 is not executing, which i mentioned in the post "Calling a Report from Macro".

Can anyone please guide me to create a customized window similar to the SAP object?

Or is there any built-in macro that i can leverage.
