creating and saving a new model- not working properly

Reported by: carieh Owned by: administrator
Priority: normal Milestone: Ecopath 6: build 6.0.7
Component: Database / Import Version:
Severity: minor Keywords:


Creating a model, and saving it as lab 4 seal cod july 1.mdb

it doesnt like the name

Lab 4 sealcod july1 created.mdb or this name
Lab 4 or this name
Basically I dont think it likes any name I give it- I get this error (see word doc july 01 notes for screen images)

And the database doesnt create, or at least you would think. The model doesnt open right away. But If I then go back to open model I can click on the models that failed to open when I created them, and they open, same screen as a blank model. So it really did save, but it didnt open a blank model when it saved, you have to then go from create model, to open model and open the file you just created. It used to just open the model for you when you created a new database.A little annoying :-)

I cannot reproduce this error, although I know that the underlying logic does not properly handle overwriting an existing database. Situations to check:

  • The target DB is read-only
  • The target DB is in use

I suspect that the file name contains 'illegal' path characters that somehow do not show up in the error report. Carie, maybe you can show the error to me; I can probably best figure out which characters cause the problem.

I presume that when you click 'ignore' in the error box, the .NET engine uses an alternate file path in which illegal characters have been fixed. Our application however does not pick up this path fix; hence it cannot open the database once it is created. This is a bug.

..erm, correction: there is no 'Ingore' option in that error box. Make that 'Continue' ;)

As of July 27 still happening
I still get this bug when I create a new model:
The model is not created, but the database is- so then I can go to re-open model, and the file I have just created is there, but doesn't open automatically
