11.1 NGDBuild - "ERROR:NgdBuild:31, 412- Invalid UCF/NCF file entry value detected...Errors found while parsing .ucf file "filename.ucf"."

Description

During implementation, NGDBuild reports the following errors:

"ERROR:NgdBuild:412 - Invalid UCF/NCF file entry value detected while reading UCF file addtest.ucf, line number is 0..."

"ERROR:NgdBuild:31 - Errors found while parsing .ucf file "addtest.ucf". Please check for syntax errors in the UCF file. For more information on legal UCF constraints, please see the "Attributes, Constraints, and Carry Logic" section of the Libraries Guide."

Solution

These messages indicate that a parsing error occurred when the UCF file was being read. Check the syntax of the constraint at the line number specified in the error message. The value specified in the error message indicates the place in the line where the syntax error occurs.

This error will sometimes occur if a "=" is missing in the middle of the constraint or if a semicolon is missing from the end of a line. It can also occur if a keyword is misspelled, or if there is no object to which the constraint is attached.

If the line number specified is "0," check the last entry in the UCF file for valid syntax.
