DATATRIEVE

DTR is not starting and displays this error message. Any help to resolve this issue?

DTR == "$DTR32"

Re: Dataretrieve

   About all I know about DATATRIEVE is how to spell it, but...

> dtr

   And your display is?

      show display

   Documentation:

      http://h30266.www3.hpe.com/odl/i64lp/databases/dtr073/datrieve.htm

Of which, the "VAX DATATRIEVE Guide to Interfaces" seems to cover this
sort of thing:

Look for "1.1  Preparing to Use DATATRIEVE in a DECwindows Environment".
If you're expecting to use a DECwindows interface, then you'll need to
use "SET DISPLAY" to set your display to some working X display.  If
not, then you might want to define DTR$NOWINDOWS.  Otherwise, use:

      dtr /interface = character_cell  ! ("HELP DTR"?)

   And, of course, a VMS forum would be a better place for this question
than a "General Feedback and Suggestions" forum.
