ERROR: (TR0120) Transformer can't write to a file. [->OK]



Building a cube fails with the following error:


(TR0120) Transformer can't write to a file. [->OK]

Resolving The Problem

In this specific scenario the resolution was to point all directories in IBM Cognos BI Transformer - File - Preferences - Directories tab to point to a drive with a larger amount of free disk space. Also setting the Auto-Partition slide to the middle rather then to the right (Faster Cube Access) using the following steps:

1. Open the Transformer Model

2. Right-Click the Cube

3. Properties

4. Auto-Partition tab

5. Slide the Partitioning to the middle

6. Click 'OK' to close and save the model.

7. Build the cube.

Note: This was symptom that was resolved with the above specific steps.
