[McIDAS #XRM-303737]: IDV at Nebraska

Hi Clint,

I drove your email into the McIDAS portion of our inquiry tracking system
since the problem is related to McIDAS more than the IDV...

Austin was lots of fun!  I too really liked Fogo de Chao!!

Ah Ha!  The problem is that the datastet group name needs to be all
in capital letters:

RTIMAGES  not RTImages

No need, all that is needed is to change the dataset name to RTIMAGES and
all will be good.  Please remind Jason that all Dataset: names in the
image chooser need to be in capital letters.  This rule applies to
