2.3  Error Messages

2.3.1  Invalid File Type

The error "Invalid file type" will appear if one or both of the files uploaded are incorrect. The most common reason for this is inserting the Microsoft Excel file (*.xls) in the ASCII Text file (*.txt) upload field and vice versa. Simply click the Back button and insert the correct file into each field.

If you are certain that the correct file is in each upload field, a more serious issue may be the cause for this error. One of your files may be corrupt or can otherwise not be read correctly by the Contribution Wizard. In this case, it is suggested that you contact the webmaster for assistance.

2.3.2  Unable to Move File to Directory

The error "Unable to move [file] to [directory]" is a serious but uncommon error that may occur during contribution upload. It is a problem on the server side, and is not a consequence of a user action or corrupt file. When this error occurs, the webmaster is immediately notified, and the problem will be resolved. It is suggested that you contact the webmaster and you will be notified when the problem has been corrected.

2.3.3  Unable to Find File

The error "Unable to find [file]" occurs during data parsing when data is expected for a particular table but is not included in your contribution. The most common cause for this error is that it was not included in your input into the MagIC Console software. It is recommended that you return to the Console to complete your data input and then return to the Contribution Wizard.

If you are certain that the data input into the MagIC Console software is complete, please contact the webmaster with a description of the problem.

2.3.4  Missing Data for Reference

The error "Missing data for [reference]" occurs during the reference step when some data for a particular reference is incomplete. The missing data will be described with the error message. The most common cause for this error is that it was not included in your input into the MagIC Console software. It is recommended that you return to the Console to complete your data input and then return to the Contribution Wizard.

If you are certain that the data input into the MagIC Console software is complete, please contact the webmaster with a description of the problem.
