Unwanted "Select Process" Dialog Box - 'Run in Parts'

Good day,

I have an application that has been working perfectly.

Among other things it will automatically create a .pff for a Tabulation Application that is based on information supplied by the user at run-time. It will then run the Tabulation Application.

Recently, the entire application was copied to another folder. All other functionality works exactly as before ... except the automatic running of the Tabulation Application. The folder it has been copied to is actually SHORTER than the previous one. However, the attached messages are now appearing.

1. "Select Process" Dialog Box.
The User Must Select All and then Click the OK Button.
The help button indicates this appears if the user is trying to "Run in Parts" the tabulation. This is NOT the case.

2. "Choose an Input File Name" Message Box.
This is NOT necessary since the .PFF already has the Input File

3. "Define Tab Associations" Dialog Box.
The User Must Click Cancel

4. "CSTab" Dialog Box.
The User Must Click OK. Then the Tabulation Application will run.

As indicated before, the above four steps are totally unnecessary when the CSPro System is run from the original file location.

Your assistance in troubleshooting this problem will be appreciated.

Thank you.

This seems strange. Just to make sure that the Tabulation Operation is set correctly, right-click on the .pff and select "Edit with PFF Editor." Click on the Options menu and make sure that "Expert Mode" is checked. You should see this:

If all of that is fine, can you send your application to cspro@lists.census.gov? We can try to figure out why the path name might be triggering those prompts.

Hi Greg,

Is it possible to completely remove this prompt? Since our Data File is in csdbe format, we supply the password through the pff and we don't want the user to see that password.

Thank you in advance.

Add this to your PFF and you won't see the prompt:

Silent=Yes
