It doesn't look like you are doing anything wrong.

Please let me know the value of the MCTABLE_READ and MCTABLE_WRITE
environment variables from the Unix shell in which you launched
McIDAS:

<as 'gstoss'>
echo $MCTABLE_READ
echo $MCTABLE_WRITE


Cheers,

Tom

Tom,
   OK - I think I figured it out. I looked at the documentation again
and changed my MCTABLE_WRITE to point to my copy of MCTABLE.TXT instead
of the mcidas user's ADDESITE.TXT. The dataloc command now appears to
work. Thanks for your help!

Greg
