Channel=open(“TEXT”, “Zonestempel Plafondafwerkingen.txt”, “SEPARATOR=’\t’, mode=ro, Library”) This file is optional, so when it is not loaded, it is fine too. However, the report shows an error that this file is missing. How can I make ARCHICAD stop reporting this missing file?

Jeroen de Bruin November 4, 2019 at 13:49 #18349 James GoodeParticipant Hi, I am using AC23 and I would like to know if there is a way to check if the file is loaded in the library or not so that I cant prevent any errors from occurring. Thanks November 5, 2019 at 08:50 #18350 Péter BaksaParticipant You could try to search for the file with the FileMan add-on (if it’s on disk, not in the loaded libraries).
