Error: Type Mismatch - when exporting actions from a gift with a linked proposal

Users may want to export Actions that are related to a Gift with a linked Proposal, and may experience the Error: Type Mismatch when exporting actions from a gift with a linked proposal.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

For the Export to run without Error: 
Remove any field from "Linked Action" from the constituent export and you will not encounter the error.
 

Steps to Duplicate

1. Create a new constituent export and include "All Records"
2. Expand the gift node
3. Expand the Linked Proposal node
4. Expand the Actions node
5. Double click on 'Category'
6. Put 1 in the field asking "For each Constituent, enter the number of Gifts to export:" select OK.
7. Another window should pop up and put 1 in the field asking "For each Gift, enter the number of Proposals to export:" Select OK.
8. The final window should pop up and put 1 in the field asking "For each, enter the number of Actions to export:" Select OK.
9. Click on "Export Now"
10. Name the file, choose the destination, and save.
11. "Error: Type Mismatch" appeared after the export started to run

Note:  This is one example of the criteria that can be used to get the error message, but it can be duplicated using any of the options related to a linked action.
