Cant work with EEPro user-made databases
« on: April 27, 2014, 09:17:53 pm »
Hi there, i'm new with EEPro, and its really awesome, but its all oriented to electronics and electricity, so I used the database creator (http://education.bwns.be/FormulaPro/) to make a database of some mechanics formulas. The problem is, I cant open the .tns file that was created on my calc and neither on the pc software (for the record, i'm using a CX CAS with 3.1.0.392 OS and 3.1.914 ndless; and my pc software is on 3.2)

whenever I try to open the .tns file i get this message:
"An error was found in the format of this document"

Is there any way to solve this problem? has anyone had the same experience?

Hum,
the generated .tns file works for me... It's made with Luna so there shouldn't be any issues opening it in any 3.x OSes.

Maybe you entered some weird characters somewhere and the encoding failed at some point ?

I'll let Jim answer, though...

At first, yes, i used weird characters like θ τ β γ. But then i make the same thing but changing θ for "theta", τ for "tau" and so on, but in the end it gave the same error message

EDIT:
I have re-write all the formulas and now is working (I think the "weird character" was m^4, changed it for m4), but just when I use the predefine units, if I chage the unit, I get an error message

I wonder if the version of Luna that is used is the latest ; I believe the latest actually fixed some encoding issues...
