I entered the name of my input file to be processed - and then the program crashed

Did you install the software in the correct directory? It should be in x:\baavss and subdirectories, where x is your hard drive.

Did you type the filename correctly?

What happens to my data if my sequence is not recognised by the program?

The data go into the database even though they are not fully checked. The logic behind this is that, in principle, the new sequence could be added to the sequence file and the problem sorted out at a later date. On the other hand, we want to ensure that the observation syntax is correct right from the start.
