It does not sound like any sequence.acam_ file is being generated in your data files' .D folders. If these data files were collected in OpenLAB ChemStation revs C.01.01 - C.01.08 then this file should be created automatically. Were these affected data files acquired in an older A or B revision of ChemStation and then transferred to your C.01.08 system?
If these data files were acquired in C.01.08 and reprocessing with a different method resolves the error, then I would be concerned about a possible corrupt method. Were all of the affected data files acquired using the same master method? Have you tried acquiring any data with other master methods since you started observing this issue? If so, are these data files also throwing this error when loaded in Review?
Thanks for the response ryoboyle
The data was acquired with ChemStation version C. To answer your questions:
- Yes, all the affected files were acquired using the same master method or a slight variation of it.
- I have not tried acquiring data with other methods, but reprocessing with older methods resolves the issue
Based on your response, it is likely a corrupted method. A previous user had experienced issues with the system when using this master method (though I do not know how that issue was resolved). For now, I will reprocess with a different method that I know will work, and replace these methods with uncorrupted versions.
Let us know if you need any further assistance with this.
I wonder if the problem is that the run time check list of the method that you're using for processing doesn't include "Standard Data Analysis"?
