Calculations in V9


Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded to v9 and now the basic calculations like water type, or hardness (or any of them) do not work correctly. I get an Error Report with no message of why it failed. Message in Error Report:

Anyone know of a fix to this problem?

It looks like GSS doesn't like some of the analytes being listed as elemental equivalents. In your case, the polyatomic ions like B(OH)3, SeO4--, etc. are fine. You can define them "as B" or "as Se," but the single element ions, like Pb++, cause the problem when defined "as Pb." For now, you'll have to change the "as..." setting for the appropriate analytes. We'll take a look at the code regarding this issue.


Hope this helps,
