    Alpha-numeric Subject IDs?

    In the "Enter Codes" box, the help system says that alpha numeric is allowable for ID but when a text word was used rather than a number, the system defaulted to log files designated as "0". Also in the Enter Codes box, the HELP button does not work. Richard Ohrbach

    The help file should read "numeric" not alpha-numeric. Note also that subject IDs are currently limited to a maximum value of 32000. It's a bug that alpha-numeric and IDs greater than 32000 are recorded as 0. This will be fixed in the next version due out this fall. In case it helps for now, there is an option on the tools menu called "Overwrite Warning" that will at least warn you in the case that you are running an identical subject ID (which would occur in these situations as all IDs would be seen by DirectRT as "0").

    Note this is fixed as of v2008.1.13.
