OK, I can point at it and get response back from the ADDE server:

DATALOC ADD RTPTSRC atm20.ucdavis.edu

Group Name                    Server IP Address
--------------------         ----------------------------------------
RTPTSRC                      ATM20.UCDAVIS.EDU

<LOCAL-DATA> indicates that data will be accessed from the local data directory.

The last line shows that the MD file for today (2002289) is munged.  This
is the entire cause of the problem you are experiencing with the MCGUI
Plot/Contour widget.

You need to delete MD file 9 (MDXX0009) since it is bad.  I recommend
doing it as follows:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd workdata
lwu.k DEL MDXX0009

Then verify that the file is gone:

Those listed above.

>That seems like a really useful troubleshooting tool....

Yup!  I really helps me quickly see what is going on a user's system.


No worries.

Excellent!  That fixed it...  Now I know where to look when something strnage
like that happens again.

Thanks again!
