Thanks to both Sergiy and Roger. I should have read the help file more carefully.

I think your setting of the global macro StatTransfer_path should be

"C:\Program Files\StatTransfer9\st.exe"

instead of simply

"C:\Program Files\StatTransfer9"

because StatTransfer_path should include the name of the executable
file, as well as its folder. (I wrote stcmd that way in case there were
operating environments where the Stat/Transfer executable had a name
other than st.exe.)

I hope this helps. Let me know if it doesn't.

Best wishes

Subject: st: inputst can't find file

I am having trouble with Roger Newson's wonderful stcmd suite (from SSC). inputst can't seem to find the file I would like to convert. Pasted below is a log in which I confirm the StatTransfer path, the file

locations, etc. Can anyone spot my mistake?

Thanks,
Devra
