I have two Panorama databases in a folder; "Ordering" and "Prices." Ordering has an .Initialize macro, where the only line is
openfile "Prices". When I open Ordering, I get this error: 'File "Prices" not found." Prices opens manually just fine. I've tried copying the file and renaming it, with no change. My only clue is that when I "Save As...", the new copy of Prices is created as Prices.pan, whereas saving a copy of Ordering (and all other Panorama files I've tried it with) does not seem to add the .pan extension.
Actually, I guess just "solved" this myself, or more accurately found a workaround, but I'm still posting it because I don't understand what's going on here. I had been deleting the .pan extension from the new file that got created by "Save As...", but I found that when I changed my .Initialize macro to
openfile "Prices.pan", it happily opens the Prices database (even after I deleting the .pan extension from the file).
So... why does this particular file seem determined to have a .pan extension, and why is Panorama unable to recognize the file without it? (I should note that it's not just this one file--my coworker had run into the same issue with a different set of files and we had been unable to resolve the issue until this moment).
