Error in coll ? I don't get it.

    Hi,
    I have this coll :
    1, 0 0 0; 2, 29 29 29; 3, 63 63 63; 4, 63 29 29; 5, 29 63 29; 6, 29 29 63;
    and Max tells me ''errors in text file in line 2'' the coll is ''saved with patcher'' It seems to work the way I want, though. Is this a bug ?
    Thanks

      Wild guess: Any invisible gremlins in your text file? Maybe a non-breaking space?

      Thanks for your replies. I ended up adding several lines to this coll, and it works fine now. No idea what it was though. I had already tried to erase invisible space... Anyway, thanks again.

      I've experienced error messages in coll objects for a few years now without really understanding why this is happening. The coll objects behave the way they're supposed to, but I always have an error in the Max Console "coll: (name): errors in text file in line n". For example, this coll is called times and it's save with patcher: 1, 4000; 2, 68500; 3, 108000; 4, 205500; 5, 305000; 6, 402000; and Max console says "coll: times: errors in text file in line 1"
      I am working on a patch for a performer and I really want to get rid of the errors in the Max Console if possible. any ideas appreciated, thanks

      I also had this problem, and found the way to solve it was to copy and paste your data into the [coll] object, and then use the write command to write a new file. The [coll] object will then be able to read the new .txt file as well as accepting the file in the [coll] argument.

      ah ok, thanks. The thing is I usually "save data with patcher" but I'll try. I got so used to these error messages that I don't notice them anymore.
