concatenate tool

Post by AriSilva » December 9th, 2020, 3:02 pm

Hi folks,
I have a concatenate pff that executes well if double clicked directly from the windows explorer. It finds all input files.
But if I call this pff from a cspro program it says that it is unable to find one of the input files.
It was working perfectly until I add a new input file, and that is the file it does not find.
The only difference that I can think of is that the file it does not seem to find was created with a slightly different dictionary: some valuesets changed from 1990:2019 to 1990:2020.

My fault,
In order to "facilitate" my work, I have installed all cspro versions starting from 7.3. That batch program was published using 7.3, so, it did not recognize the csdb file created under 7.5, thus the message "unable to open file..." to execute the concatenation.
When double clicked the pff to concatenate, it used 7.5, and could process the new file.
Anyway, I think this is a good lesson for users that try to be very "smart".
Sorry to bother you with that.
Best
Ari
