Has anyone ever received a “Cannot open job” warning? I’m trying to open a job and it keeps giving me a warning screen saying “cannot open job”. Can’t even exchange from job either. Thanks

Was the job created in a 5.* version and then tried to reopen with a 4.* version?  It is not really backwards compatible.    If the job is corrupted, you can try to open the back up file. Go to open jobs, and have the drop down changed to mjf.bak.  That will enable you to open the timed back up copy it makes.  If you have that option configured in it.

Would you know what would cause a corruption of the file?

#1 cause I have seen, is people shutting down the controller, while still in Magnet Field.  Always exit Magnet Field first, then power it down.  Just like on a computer, you don't have a file open in Word, and then just switch the power off.

Anyone who puts on the latest release, followed by a .0, should be aware of how buggy that software will be.  SurvCE 4.01 lists 5 pages of bug fixes upgrading from 4.0.  I assume the 5 and 6 releases were the same.  Magnet 5.1 is now out for field, no release notes on what is fixed mind you, until they release 5.1 Office.
