I can't see features in the list although the connection to the database (SQLServer) is correct

A: The table at the database has to contain two columns. At first the one with the geometry stored in and another for BLOB. The BLOB column has to be named like the geometry column. One possibility is that the geometry column is named GEOMETRY_SPA, then the BLOB column has to be just named GEOMETRY. Another example is that the geometry column is named geom, then the BLOB columns has to be named exactly the same then the geometry column with the extension _GDO. The datatype of the BLOB column is varbinary(max).

Can't select or fit to the query result(s) --> I can see the result of my executed query in the datagrid but nothing happens if I try to select or fit one of them in the map

A: Please inform your administrator that he or she has to check the following fact:

If your data is stored in ORALCE, check the datatype of your ID column. The GeoMedia Smart Client Server cannot correctly interact with GeoMedia Smart Client itself if the datatype of your ID column is, for example, NUMBER(38,0) because that is not a valid Integer/Long value. Change the datatype to the highest possible Long value, which is NUMBER(18,0).

Solution 1:: Check My offline page isn't styled

Solution 2:: Please login in GeoMedia Smart Client (online) and check if you can find for your offline workflow a error-message like:
SEVERE: Can't prepare the 'OFFLINE' for offline usage because of an exception! --> [pool-1-thread-2] com.intergraph.web.plugin.offlinedatasupport.OfflineDataSupportPlugin.prepareOfflineWorkflows<br/> http://localhost/GMSC/Workflows/Manifest?workflow=MyOfflineWorkflow&form=My_OfflineForm&WORKFLOW_PROJECT=12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012&WORKFLOW_SITE=GMSC&lang=en-US in your log file.

What should you do?
1. Check if the URL of your action definition is correct. For example, the red colored URL misses the required controler definition, because the URL should look like http://localhost/GMSC/Workflows/SmartClientOffline?Manifest&workflow=MyOfflineWorkflow&form=My_OfflineForm&WORKFLOW_PROJECT=12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012&WORKFLOW_SITE=GMSC&lang=en-US . Correct your action definition, reload GMSC and try it again.

2. Open the URL which is defined after the (red colored) in your browser and check if the page is reachable. Check if the URL of your action definition is correct.
