Exception: cannot change field "project" from index options=DOCS to inconsistent index options=NONE

Hi, I new in OpenRefine. I am trying to work with the athlete_events.csv from Klagge. But, when I want to facet the data (any variable) I get this message: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: cannot change field "project" from index options=DOCS to inconsistent index options=NONE

Some help please!!!

Hi Patricia,

Welcome to the OpenRefine community. Is this the data set you are using? athlete_events.csv | Kaggle ?

Can you confirm which version of OpenRefine you are using and which computer operating system (window/mac/linux) you use?

Where does this error message appear?

How are you creating the facet?

Any other details you can share will help us help you!

Best wishes

Owen

Thanks Owen. Yes, that is the dataset . The version of OpenRefine is 3.6.2. The message appears on the left top corner.
I only do click on the text facet option on the column's head.

Thanks Patricia. The first thing I would do is upgrade to the latest version OpenRefine 3.8.1 - this just helps rule out any issues that have been fixed since 3.6.2

If you are running on Windows or Linux, can you share the content of your terminal window that opens when you run OpenRefine?

I'm 99% certain that error is not coming from core OpenRefine. Do you have any extensions installed? I would suggest removing any extensions and retrying the operation.

A quick web search indicates that the error is likely coming from Solr (or something that uses it).
