The McIDAS schema file, SCHEMA, must exist in the directory in which
the output data file is to be written AND it must be readable.  The
commentary above "unable to open SCHEMA" is telling us that IF the file
is there, it is not readable by the person running proftomd.

The comment about the routing table is that proftomd couldn't find
ROUTE.SYS in the directory in which it is attempting to create the
output MD file.  This is not crutial since proftomd will continue
even though the routing table does not exist.

Is it readable?

>I am sure U4 is for hourly data.

Again, setting the U4 WPRO 70 sequence will only have an effect if
ROUTE.SYS is in the output directory AND is readable AND writable.

>WPRO is SCHEMA. I don't know where is wrong.

Please check to see if SCHEMA can be read and let me know the results.


You are welcome.
