    Visual Reports builder throws an error

    Asked by JHooperEMCOR on August 08, 2016 at 10:05 AM

    Every time I click "Visual Report Builder" in the reports section, it pulls up this screen (screenshot attached)

    Hi @JHooperEMCOR, I was able to replicate the problem on my end when I loaded this form's Visual Report https://www.jotform.com/page.php?p=reports&formID=61523642355150

    I got the same page as shown on your screenshot:

    I noticed the error being thrown mentions the following:

    Fatal error: Maximum function nesting level of '100' reached, aborting!

    And when I checked the number of fields you have, it's 108 in total (more than 100).

    Thanks for reporting this to us. I'll have this thread escalated to our Development Team so they can have a look. Although we won't be able to give any timeframes, rest assured we will keep you posted on this same thread for any updates.

    For the meantime, if it's crucial for you to generate a visual report right now, try lowering your fields to just under 100 (if possible) and see if that will help as a temporary resolution.

    Kindle let us know how it goes in case you will give it a spin.

    To save your time, I just gave it a try with a clone of your form and tried lowering down the number of fields from 108 to just 99 with no luck. I'm afraid the only thing left to do now is to wait for an update from our devs.

    Thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation.
