I also tried to use sNeighborFinder in version SDI 5.1.1 TOS 5.1.2 and I get "error("Cannot find a geometry column");" using the example or trying to build a new job.
Any idea about what is wrong ?

Re: problems with the neighbourfinder tutorial

After some trial and error, I found what was wrong. The geometry column needs to be the key column for the lookup input. Once this is correctly defined, it works fine.

Impossible on my side to use neighbourfinder tutorial. Daniel, could you post the corrected job?
The error message: "La méthode error(String) est indéfinie pour le type"

Re: problems with the neighbourfinder tutorial

What I found out is that it works when the geometry column of the lookup table is the key column. What I do is use a tMap component where the output geometry column is key. See the attached picture for more details.
