It's an I/O error that hasn't been caught by Norcat - which usually tries to give you more informative error messages than that.

First. Are you using an up-to-date Norcat?

I added many diagnostic messages to deal much better with file I/O problems on 10-05-04 V3.1.93. The current version is 3.3.03.

If you are up-to-date, then it may be that some of the files / folders that Norcat needs are missing / renamed / read-only.

The best way to restore this is to close Norcat then go into C:\Norcat and delete folders Data, Output and Reports. Now create new empty Data, Output and Reports folders. Finally restart Norcat and run from the Get T2T Data button onwards.

Here's the list of possible I/O errors.

100 Disk read error Reported by Read on a typed file if you attempt to read past the end of the file.

101 Disk write error Reported by CloseFile, Write, WriteIn, or Flush if the disk becomes full.

102 File not assigned Reported by Reset, Rewrite, Append, Rename, or Erase if the file variable has not been assigned a name through a call to Assign or AssignFile.

103 File not open Reported by CloseFile, Read Write, Seek, Eof, FilePos, FileSize, Flush, BlockRead, or BlockWrite if the file is not open.

104 File not open for input Reported by Read, Readln, Eof, Eoln, SeekEof, or SeekEoln on a text file if the file is not open for input.

105 File not open for output Reported by Write or Writeln on a text file if you do not generate a Console application.

106 Invalid numeric format Reported by Read or Readln if a numeric value read from a text file does not conform to the proper numeric format.

If you get any such errors it may be best to close Norcat and try again.

Must have been a one-off wierdo. Lets all blame Bill Gates.
