    • By default, Unbound Reference Reports are stored in C:\Users\<username>\Documents as an UnboundReferences.csv file.
    • The UnboundReferences.csv is overwritten each time the report is run if the same file name is used.

  • Referenced Item: The FQR location of the missing object reference from the archive.
  • Reference Attribute: The attribute name of the unbound reference if it were to exist in the archive.
