While using the program to create an XLM file I was given the following output. This is a small excerpt but their are a ton of missing fixes.

Quote:
Error on line 122959: Unknown fix name: JOINN ( MOL MOL JOINN JOINN)
Error on line 122959: Unknown fix name: JOINN ( MOL MOL JOINN JOINN)
Error on line 122960: Unknown fix name: JOINN ( JOINN JOINN AVERY AVERY)
Error on line 122960: Unknown fix name: JOINN ( JOINN JOINN AVERY AVERY)
Error on line 122965: Unknown fix name: FLCON ( ODF ODF FLCON FLCON)
Error on line 122965: Unknown fix name: FLCON ( ODF ODF FLCON FLCON)


I am not sure which NAVdata the program uses but these fixers are both in the sectorfile and vSTARS Navdata is up to date. I cannot determine why it cannot find fixes like JOINN & FLCON but is finding MOL & AVERY.

Thoughts?

SectorFileToVideoMap does not use vSTARS' navdata at all ... it only looks for fixes within the sector file being parsed.

Are you sure they are defined in the sector file?

Are you getting any other formatting errors?

whoops. After some searching, it looks like the updated Navdata in our sector file is too new. It appears they have changed a few fix names on the star which are updated in the Navdata but not on our diagram.

Looks like the FAA replaced JOINN with a new fix name. I guess only so controllers have to learn the new names and to add work to the FEs desk.
