About The Document Integrity Check

The document integrity check is an automated process that can be run on the file to locate common design errors in the file.

The integrity check looks for several types of errors. The following are some examples:

  • Table cells that are misnamed, located outside their rows or columns, or that have duplicated names.
  • Duplicated table names.
  • Cells that have potential problems with naming, settings, or calculations linking to external data.
  • Non-existent styles in the documents.

The integrity check reports not only errors that could cause a problem with the functioning of the file, but also general design problems. This second kind are listed as "warnings" rather than "errors" in the diagnostics screen.

The document integrity check flags errors in roll forward references and recalculations that are cyclic. When it reports a cyclic error, it displays only the first problem. Fixing the first issue and re-running the integrity check will highlight any subsequent problems. Keep re-running the integrity until all of the issues in the cyclic error are cleared.

Tip: You can filter out messages of the same type by right-clicking an error message or message group and selecting Hide all messages of this type. You can learn more about document integrity errors here.
