Working with forces in pisoFoam

A few days ago I downloaded the new 1.7.0 ubuntu package from the download page and am new at this stuff.
I recently tried to run a case in pisoFoam with the modifications to the controlDict to calculate the forces on an object.
But the solver just outputs some strange error which I don't understand.
Starting time loop
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Unknown function type forces
Table of functionObjects is empty
From function function object::New(const word& name, const Time&, const dictionary&)
in file db/functionObjects/functionObject/functionObject.C at line 73.
What does that mean? Am I going to have to compile OpenFoam from source?
Edit: I solve the issue. My controlDict had incorrect syntex.
I'm not sure how to delete this thread.
