Error: Run-time error "-2147219868 (80040664): CRecord: Init method must be called before using this object" - when saving a blank participant record

When creating a new participant record, if you choose to link an existing constituent record but the constituent already has a participant record, users may receive the following message:
"You cannot select this constituent because the constituent you selected is already registered for this event".
If you click Save and Close on the blank participant record, you receive the following error message:
"Run-time error '-2147219868 (80040664)': CRecord: Init method must be called before using this object".

Note: Event records in The Raiser's Edge require the presence of the optional RE:Event module.
