TCA misconfiguration: a field name that does not exist

TCA misconfiguration in table
"the_table_name" field "the_field_name" config section: ds_pointerField
"the_field_name_type" points to a field name that does not exist.

This happens in the TCE for a field which is configured by a ‘ds_pointerField’. You must also add a TCA column for the corresponding type field the_field_name_type.

'config_type' => array (
    'label' => 'LLL:EXT:my_extension/locallang_db.xml:the_table_name.the_field_name_type',
    'config' => array (
        'type' => 'select',
        'renderType' => 'selectSingle',
        'items' => array (
            array(, )
        'default' => ,
        'authMode' => $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['BE']['explicitADmode'],
