Error description

  • When using a .dms script to convert to Quantum or Triple S, the
    output CSV file generated by WriteToCommaSeparatedFile is wrong
    in some cases where a previous csv file is read in the script
    using ReadFromCommaSeparatedFile.  This does not affect the
    data, as the data is still recorded correctly and read correctly
    because the "DataFormat with Value" column will be used for
    processing the true location of the category response.  However,
    it does make it confusing to users who look at the output CSV
    file.
