Error reading the dat file
Hi Everyone,
Recently I have received a cas and dat file, and I need to run simulations on them. As I try to read the cas and dat file, the cas file is properly opened but I receive error for opening the dat file. I receive the following error:
Error: in read_thread_svar!
Error object: #f
Error reading the dat file.
What does this error mean and how should I fix it?

Try to read firstly ". Cas" alone then ".dat" separately

Error: in read_thread_svar!
Hi all,

I too got the same error, when I read case and data files.

The answer in this thread was , to read case first separately and then data file. But that doesn't work for me.

I found in my case, that the case and data file was different.

From this, I came to know that there might be some kind of problem with case and data.
Please ensure the case files and data files belongs to same set of analysis.
