"Please enclose dataset name in quotes" error


Recommended Posts


I modified thermo.com.V8.R6+ to include the mineral Powellite. When opening a previously saved Act2 file that uses the modified dataset, I get the error "Please enclose dataset name in quotes. Cancel reading input script?" If I click yes or no to continue, the previously entered Basis data is gone. How can I fix it so I can open my Act2 files without the Basis data disappearing?

The modified dataset is attached.

Hello Scott,

I think the issue is including the apostrophe in the dataset name. While it doesn't cause an issue when loading into Act2 but reading the saved script will lead to quote enclosure issue since the file path for the thermo dataset is enclosed in double quotes when saved. To fix this, you can delete the apostrophe in the dataset name and then open the .ac2 file in a text editor (e.g. Notepad), and delete the apostrophe and save. You should be able to open the Act2 script after this.

Hope this helps,
Jia Wang
