Course Cannot be Found in the Course Catalog in Scheduling

Name of Error in Merge Report

Failed creating section because {courseId}/{subtype} is not in the course catalog


Failed creating section because ADV57075/CRSE is not in the course catalog


  • In PowerCampus when creating a section for a course, the subtype must match one of the subtypes that has been set at the course level.

  • If a subtype is selected that does not exist for the course, the integration will not be able to identify the course in the course catalog. This will cause this merge error and prevent the user from creating the section. 

Best Practice / How to Resolve

In order to resolve this error, the user should select a valid subtype for the section.
