Hello everyone. My code broke recently, and I can't figure out why (perhaps it was the upgrade to 0.14.3?). Anyway, I have an ActiveRecord mapping to my phpBB database. Pulling data from that mapping works just fine. However, when I try to *save* data (ie on a 'create' or 'save') I get this error: undefined local variable or method `table_name' for #<PhpbbPostsText:0x8e7d0dc> This had been working just fine before, and I hadn't touched the mapping in quite some time (which is why I suspect the Rails upgrade). Did something change in recent Rails/ActiveRecord upgrades? Why would I be able to pull data from the mapping without problem (clearly it understands the which table name to use in this case!?) but when I go to save I get an error. This happens both when browsing the site (lighttpd/fcgi) as well as when running script/console in dev mode. Any idea what is going on here? My model simply looks like this right now: class PhpbbPostsText < ActiveRecord::Base set_primary_key :posts_text_id set_table_name :phpbb_posts_text end

I hate replying to my own post, but I figured out what was going on. The name of the primary key in the table of interest had changed. Why this was throwing a undefined method error for "table_name" instead of a "I can't find this primary key field" error I'm not sure, cause that was very misleading!!

Are you sure you're up-to-date? If upgrading does not resolve the error, please post a ticket at http://dev.rubyonrails.org/newticket including the full backtrace for the error. jeremy -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.2 (Darwin) iD8DBQFDe5KEAQHALep9HFYRAvEvAKCoRg+6HE6syDfyB3p0AavKaZ3xGQCdGGT3 BNJHhrhkGc6uqRLd30AjwYo= =xNVv -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

My mistake. I though TextDrive had gone to 0.14.3, but they are indeed still at 0.14.2. Matt
