Value cannot be null. Parameter name: title Value when switching navigation pages in GP2013

Hi Folks

I have been fairly quiet for a while on the blogging front however with the roll out of GP2013 there is  now a whole raft of new features and the odd issue that have prompted me to start typing.

We have experienced an issue with navigation pages and according to the forums a few other people out there have come across the same. In GP2013 when switching to certain navigation pages the user may get an error message saying "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: title Value", you may then be forced to crash out of GP (this does not seem to happen every time).

According to the forum post, Microsoft were tentatively looking at putting a fix in SP1. However SP1 has been released and the fix did not make it in in time. All is not lost though there are a couple of workarounds available.

·         You can run the following SQL script, this will temporarily solve the issue, however it may re occur and you will need to run the script again.
Delete DYNAMICS..SY07140 where CMDDICTID = 1

·         On the Splash/Home page of the module in which this occurs, if you click into the 'Customise this page' link you will see a blank module which is ticked. Un-tick the mystery option, and the error will go away. However, the blank option remains in the list...(and the error won’t always allow you to get to the customise this page option).

Microsoft are working on a fix and I’ll update this blog when we know a release date.

Since publishing this article it would now appear that the fix has been included in SP1 (Conflicting information from two different engineers). I have confirmed this with our TSAM , full details can be obtained from the below Knowledgebase article:
