    p_file_20: Param Errors Found: F01: File ..../facs does not exist

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    One of our programmers is having problems with the patron loader:

    We are getting the error below with the new files and with the old files. I don’t really understand what the error message below means (where the problem is in the patron loader file).

    I just double-checked, and there are no files “facs” or “stud” on the production v17 aleph server scratch folder.

    What they seem to be are 4-character truncated versions of “facsaff_ads.txt” and “student_add.txt” which are the normal patron loader files.

    Param Errors Found:
    F01: File /exlibris/aleph/u20_1/abc50/scratch/facs does not exist.
    Wrote Z100 record with rec-key: 000001063
    Param Initialization Failure, Exiting !!!

    In your problem description you show the file names as “facsaff_ads.txt” and “student_add.txt”.

    The files in abc50 $data_scratch are “facstaff_ads.txt” and “student_ads.txt”.

    As described in KB 5960, the filename which you see in the error message is often truncated.

    Please resubmit the job making sure that you enter the file name correctly on the submission screen.
