ERW report generation stops before completion

FAQ Question

I’ve experienced a problem when generating an ERW report. The report generation starts up and then it seems to freeze up and I’m left without any finished report. What’s the remedy?


There have been minor flaws in the ERW module which have been corrected in the patch below. In addition, the following improvements have been made:

  • Command line interface: now, spaces in file names and paths are supported.
  • Report generation performance: reduced time for report generation.
  • Excel behaviour: by default the Excel workbook is now kept in the background.

The patch consists of two files, ERW.mde and msacsupp4.dll. The first must be unzipped to the [IGSS install path]\GSS\ERW folder and the second must be unzipped to the [IGSS install path]\GSS folder.
