I have a TM with well over 200,000 TUs that upon attempting an export gives me an Inconsistent Data error message.

Export and reorganization attempts always stop at around 46500, so I guess that's where the problem must be.

Is there any way to fix this? Can I isolate and delete the culprit TUs?

Hi Nora,

This is a quiet difficult task.

Is it a .txt or .tmx file you want to create?

In case you have been tryibg to generate a txt file, try to export as a tmx.

I guess you tried to reorganize it before exporting, if not do it.

To isolate and delete the culprit TU you have to be able to open the file and you can, to locate it. Nothing will tell you which one it is.

You can try to open a tmw file following the advice on this link:

Good luck Nora,

Jean-Yves
