Error: INVALID NUMERIC OUTPUT or DATA TRANSFER BEYOND END OF FILE

Solution or Workaround

Summary

TIGERARC produces the following error:

INVALID NUMERIC OUTPUT (SEE "LITERAL DATA" IN THE LAHEY FORTRAN 90 LANGUAGE
REFERENCE). FILE=C:\TEMP\T$0ARC0\FORT1, UNIT = 1, RECORD = 3, POSITION = 1.

DISSOLVE produces this error:

DATA TRANSFER BEYOND END OF FILE. FILE=C:\TEMP\T$ARC0\FORT1, UNIT=1,
RECORD=2, POSITION=0.

Cause

Both TIGERARC and DISSOLVE run a batch file (on ptool) that write some information into a file called FORT1, which is then read by actual executable. The above errors will occur if this file is not written correctly by the batch file, or it is not read correctly by the executable.

This can happen when you are running two different versions of PC ARC/INFO, does the versions of the batch file and the executable do not match.

It can also happen if the executable files are unzipped in the programs directory, and have gotten corrupted some how.

Solution

Delete all the .exe files in the programs directory and restart Arc. This will unzip the executables again.

If the errors still occur, you might need to reinstall PC ARC/INFO.
