Sometimes when I generate a workspace in fme 2014, the reader and writer get created but not added to the workspace. Can anyone explain why?
The obvious problems (and apologies if these really are too obvious)
- Your datasets are empty!
- There is a problem scanning the schema. Check the log window for errors
- You are trying to read a dataset with the wrong format set (e.g. it is a Shape dataset but the format is set to MapInfo)
- That part of the canvas is just not in view!
You could try reading the data with the FME Data Inspector, as this would confirm whether there is a problem with the data or not.
Anyway, I've seen this happen, but only on very rare occasions. If the problem persists you should definitely contact the support team.
