    Can't create a new record or open a catalog template

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Problem Symptoms:
    When opening a new catalog record the format list is empty
    Templates can't be opened and display an error message

    The pc_cat.pck is not correctly created because an old pc_cat.pck was saved with a suffix in $alephe_dev/xxx01/pc_tab/catalog directory,
    so it was itself packaged into the new package.

    1. Move the old package to another directory
    2. Run util x/7 to clean temporary files
    3. Run util m/7 to create a new package
    4. Delete all the files in the PC under C:\AL500\Catalog\libs\xxx01\tab
    5. Reconnect GUI to BIB library
