Error Attempting to Add a New Technician

Symptom: Attempting to create a new entry in Technician Setup gives an error similar to the following:

Error: An unknown error of type System.InvalidOperationException has occurred. ExecuteReader requires the command to have a transaction when the connection assigned to the command is in a pending local transaction. The Transaction property of the command has not been initialized.



This is due to having the same description for multiple phone number entries. Remove or rename the duplicate description. 

1. Go to Setup > Standard Descriptions > Phone

2. Find and change the duplicate. For example, there are two Home types below. Change one.
