    Generic Message

    Most errors that occur in Xtraction lead to a generic error message displayed in the web interface.  If this is a server-side error, it should be recorded in the log files on the server.  However, if it is a client-side error, no entries are logged on the server.  To see the details about the error from within the browser application, place the application in "Debug Mode".

    To place Xtraction in debug mode, modify the web address (URL) by placing "?debugmode=true" at the end of the address, after "default.aspx".

    When Xtraction loads in Debug Mode, an initialization dialog appears.  Typically, you can ignore the information displayed in this dialog and simply click the OK button to proceed.
