This kind of a syntax error is not picked up and reported by 'ldmadmin pqactcheck'. Still another possibility is that there are not appropriate tabs in your pqact.conf entry. ># GOES West Visible >MCIDAS ^pnga2area Q1 (U9) (.*) (.*) (.*) (.*) (........)

The reason I say this is the lack of alignment in your listing. The '-' in the '-l' does not align vertically with the beginning of other lines (PIPE, /home/ldm'ldm-mcidas..., -a /home/ldm/ldm-mcidas..., -b /home/ldm/ldm-mcidas, and /home/ldm/data/unidata...). As a reminder, pqact.conf entries demand use of tabs as white space in certain places: o between MCIDAS and ^pnga2area o before PIPE o before -close o before /home/ldm/ldm-mcidas-7.6.4/bin/pnga2area o before -l /home/ldm/... o before -a ... o before -b ... o before /home/ldm/data Tom Yoksas >From address@hidden Fri Oct 6 10:30:38 2000 >Subject: Re: 20001004: problem with MCIDAS pqact.conf entry > Did you run 'ldmadmin pqactcheck' to see if pqact.conf syntax was valid? > Another possibility is that there is a line above your entry that has a > leading blank.

Actually, I did not remember the pqactcheck tool until later, and this is what finally fixed the problem. There were some extra spaces in some lines.
