Undefined command error during download of strategy with nested subroutine that has space in filename


Applies To:

  • PAC Control Basic
  • PAC Control Professional

Versions Affected:

R10.2a to R10.4a

Resolved In Version:

R10.4b


Symptoms:

Under the following conditions, PAC Control displays an undefined command error during the strategy download:

  1. In PAC Control, you create a subroutine with a valid name.
  2. Outside of PAC Control, you change the name of the subroutine file so that it includes a space.
  3. In PAC Control, you import the subroutine into a strategy. PAC Control does not report any errors regarding the invalid filename. If you compile the strategy, PAC Control does not report any errors indicating that the subroutine filename is invalid.
  4. When you download the strategy, PAC Control reports an undefined command error.

Workaround:

Remove references to the subroutine in your strategy, fix the filename, then re-import the subroutine: 

  1. Remove references to the subroutine from the strategy. (If the references in the strategy contain the valid name you plan to use, you can "comment out" references to the subroutine.)
  2. Use File Explorer to change the file name to a valid file name. (The file name must start with a letter followed by any combination of letters, numbers or underscores. No other characters—including spaces—may be used in the filename.)
  3. Import the subroutine into the strategy.
  4. Add the correct references to the subroutine. If you "commented out" the references as describe in step 1, remove the comment delimiters.
