Hi Randy,

This should work fine.  I would check to make sure that all of the
files in the set defined by 'path/2002*.met7' are valid AREA files.
Also, if your data is arranged so that there are no files other than
the ME5/7 AREA files in any 'path' directory, you might try to 
simplify your regular expression to something like 'path/2002*'.
The last thing I would try is removing the quotes from around
the regular expression (shouldn't be needed, but...).

You can always see what is going on with the server by adding the
TRACE=1 keyword sequence to an IMGLIST command and then examining
the 'trce' file produced.

Hi, Randy -

I just tried this with MET7/B data, and it works fine for me. Take a 
look at what I did, and see if you can see any differences in how you're 
setting up your data:

    IMGCOPY MET/B A/A.4000
    !mkdir path
    !cp AREA4000
    !ls path

    DSSERVE ADD MET7/DATA AREA DIRFILE='path/2004*.met7'
    Adding the group MET7 as a local dataset
    Group/Descriptor         Type  Format & Range     RT Comment
    ------------------------ ----- ------------------ --
    MET7/DATA                IMAGE AREA
    DSSERVE: done

    imglist MET7/DATA
    Image file directory listing for:MET7/DATA
     Pos Satellite/         Date       Time      Center   Band(s)
         sensor                                 Lat  Lon
     --- -------------  ------------  --------  ---- ---- ------------
       1  METEOSAT7     17 FEB 04048  18:00:00    45   19 10
    imglist: done

One thing you might want to try is to put the fully explicit path in 
your DIRFILE (e.g. /home/beckys/mcidas/data/path/2004*.met7 instead of 
just path/2004*.met7).  If this doesn't work for you and you can't 
figure out why, please send me the output from these commands run in the 
McIDAS command window:

    !ls -la path  
        o  if this doesn't list any files, then there is
        probably something wrong with your DIRFILE set up
        o  also, make sure that the files are readable by you

Hope this helps!
