    When it occurs?

    Error 3000 usually pops up when you are done with some database operations and now you are saving them in a row, column or a tree. At that time this error pops up and stops further processing. Another occurrence of this error pops up when you want to split a big database into smaller chunks or you want to make a copy of database.
