!map:HashWithIndifferentAccess

Hi All,

I have an extremely frustrating problem and I kind of think this is an
error in rails, but you never know.

I have a hash of objects that I am iterating through in order to display
the needed info. As I am doing that and displaying half a dozen values,
one value is being interrupted by rails as a hash and giving me this
error:

--- !map:HashWithIndifferentAccess comm: "1" comm_percentage: "12"
hotel_name: "111947" rate: "2.00" additional_email_1: "" amenities: cccc
neg_by: Client comm_dollar_amt: "34.00" hod: test rac: xxx billing: "0"

I understand what the messages says, it thinks I am working with a hash,
the thing is that I'm not. The column is clearly defined as a character
varying as is most all of the other columns which display with no
problem. The thing is I can't figure out how to fix this problem. Here
is some of my code:

<% @hotelcontracts.each do |@contract| %>
  <div id = "contract_<%= @contract.id %>">
    <%= @contract.hotel_name %>
    <%= @contract.rate %>
    <%= @contract.amen %> ERROR OCCURES HERE
  </div>
<% end %>

Has anybody ran into this issue before? And how did you fix it? Thanks,

I notice that the hash displayed in the error have a member amenities
whereas in the line which generates the error it is amen. Is this
part of the problem?

What happens if in a console you type
c = Hotelcontracts.first (or whetever the model is called)
c.amen

Otherwise paste the code from db/schema.rb for this table and the code
for the model.rb (leave out any immaterial methods in there). Also
paste the method from the controller (where presumably @hotelcontracts
is setup).

This is were I think Rails is falling down. Originally I had that field
named as "amenities," but when the same error was occurring I thought
maybe that was a key word, or something, and changed it to "amen." But
obviously the problem persists.

c = Hotelcontracts.first (or whetever the model is called)
c.amen

This produces the same output.

Model:
class Hotelcontract < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :account
end

Controller:
@hotelcontracts = Hotelcontract.find( :all, :conditions => ['account_id
= ?', @account.id])

db:
amen is simply defined as a character varying with nothing really
different then any of the other fields in the table.

Looks like your model still has amenities.

Paste the result of Hotelcontract.first please…

My bad,

When I submitted the form that saved all the pertinent info, I had this
code:

@hotelContract.amen = params[:hotelcontract]

which basically took all the hotel contracts fields and saved them into
that one which then got interpreted as a hash. Thanks for the help,
Colin, happy Friday.
