    I have a question regarding Sitefinity Events.

    Where can I find in the Sitefinity DB  Event Publication/Expiration Date?

    I have imported events archive, where there was no publication/expiration date. Now, when I try to edit past event I got the following error:


    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Source Error:

    An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.

    Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.3053; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.3053

    What can be done? Can I update these dates in the DB?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Stanimira,

    How did you import the archive? Here is an script that will return Publication_Date and Expiration_Date for all event items.

    SELECT TOP 1000 [ContentID] 
      FROM [sitefinity351747].[dbo].[sf_GCMetaData]  
      where Application ='/Events' 
      and (KeyValue = 'Expiration_Date' or KeyValue = 'Publication_Date'

    I hope this helps.
