vrf File Help

Question asked by ramarquardt on Oct 2, 2001

We just write the files locally and let another process transfer them
across
the network. That way if a file server drops out, we can still test.
The data just accumulates on the local machine until the server gets
back on line.
We use a simple FTP script to do the transfers.
This has worked well for the last 6 years here.

Subject:  vrf File Help


All,
     I'm having trouble with writing to files sometimes during one of my
tests.  I get error number 630 "Invalid Value [File path]"  I have some
error trapping implemented so that it traps any error (including this one)
and displays a message to the user asking them to note the error and then
click retest.  The program then goes back and retests the part at that
condition and tries to write to the file again.  The problem seems to be
stemming from when our file server is handling too many requests at once
and
gets overloaded.  When this happens, the error pops up in VEE.  Windows
seems to be able to recover just fine by going to Win Explorer and hitting
refresh, but for some reason, VEE cannot.  I'm using VEE 6.01 on both Win98
and Win2k boxes.  My question is, when VEE opens a file the first time it
writes to the file and holds on to it while the program is running (for
instance a .csv file), is there a way to have VEE release the file and open
the connection again?  I think this is where the problem is stemming from.
If I could release the file and then open it again after Windows has
recovered, it may allow VEE to recover.  Any help would be appreciated.  I
hope I've been clear enough in this email.  Thanks for your help.


Regards,
Marc
