I came across this error and I couldn't find a solution already posted. I want to share my thoughts to why it occured (I managed to solve the issue) but I it would be great if I could better understand the "Properties Setting" part.
I got the error on a Join Multiple that joins on position, one of the incomming fields was non-existent because an issue with the source file.
I hope this helps someone who comes accross this error. Anyone who wants to contribute, is welcome to do so.
