Error Codes

From time to time you might see errors occur within the ComQuest program.  Many times these are non-critical informational errors; something that was supposed to occur did not.  Other times, they could be an indication of something more critical; the Workstation has lost its path to the Fileserver (where all the data is stored), or one or more files are corrupt.


Generally, in the case of file corruption, we can always re-build or fix your files.  At the very least, we can restore your most recent backup.  If you have re-booted or turned off/on at least one of the computers in the last day, you will generally have a backup available for restoration on that computer, created by AutoBack.  However, if the backup was made after the data corruption occurred, all you will have is a backup of corrupt data, which will be of no help in resolving your problem.  Thus, it is prudent to make backups on a regular basis (storing at least one of the backups each week off-site, such as on a floppy disk or on another computer's hard-drive).


When you do see an error occur, you should always write down the specific text of the error message, and report it to ComQuest Technical Support.  As there are more than 400 places from within the ComQuest program that an error could be detected, we must know more than just "you are getting errors" to help resolve the problem.


When you call for technical assistance, we will want to know:


The text of the error message you are getting.


What procedure you were in when you got the error.


When the error(s) began occurring; and/or the last time everything was working fine before the error(s) started.


Please have this information handy when you phone or page for Technical Support, so that we may assist you in a prompt manner.


During regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30am - 5:30pm PST), please phone ComQuest at 619-659-3600.  At all other times, if it's a critical error that can't wait until the next business day, please page us at 800-237-0633.  Press 1 to send a page, then enter a phone number (including Area Code) at which we will be able to contact you at when we return your call. After paging Technical Support, please be sure to watch the phone line that we will be calling you on.  If this number is a Workstation phone, be sure the ringer on this headset is turned on.

Error Reading Drive M:


Drive "M" is the network name for the Fileserver.  This means there is a problem reading or sharing file information between the Workstation you're on and the Fileserver.  Generally, waiting a couple seconds and clicking on either Continue or Ignore will re-try what you were doing, and continue without a problem.  If this problem continues on a regular basis, you should contact Technical Support.
