Opening a comparison: could not read from file

Question: 

When trying to open a comparison, we get the error message "Could not read from file 'CompName'." The comparison is stored in the connected database, however. What could be the problem?

Answer: 

Comparisons that are loaded from a connected database are temporarily stored in the TEMP.DAT file in the database directory. The error could mean that this file got corrupted or is set to read-only. The solution is to delete the TEMP.DAT file, so BioNumerics (GelCompar II) will re-create the file automatically.
