CSSOrt silently omit data when a record have more instances than the allowed maximum

Postby pleon » August 4th, 2017, 2:41 pm

Our dictionary have a record of people/population with a maximimum of 30 person per home.

The data file (text), built with a custom non-CSPRO application, contained homes with more than 30 people.

When sorted the people above the 30 mark where omitted without warning.

We thinnk that there should be a warning in those cases.

Normally there should be a warning written to the listing file. Is this with version 6.3 or version 7.0?

The CSFreqRun do show a message like:

Process Messages

*** Case [XXXXXXXXXXX] has 5 messages (0 E / 5 W / 0U)
W 10006 Too many occurrences for Record or Group POP_R (Case:
'XXXXXXXXXXX)
W 10006 Too many occurrences for Record or Group POP_R (Case:
'XXXXXXXXXXX')
W 10006 Too many occurrences for Record or Group POP_R (Case:

You should see the same errors in the file CSSort.lst that is generated in the same folder as the dictionary. We should probably display this file if it has warnings in it like we do with Frequencies.

Yep, showing the file or at least advice to look the log file on closing dialog box.
