What to Do Before Contacting Technical Support

  1. Review the section of the SCA document related to the capability or procedure.

  2. Double check the syntax related to the capability or procedure. Some of the most common errors are typing errors, a missing period omitted to separate an SCA option sentence, or a command line exceeding 72 characters in length (use the "@" line continuation symbol for command lines that exceed 72 characters).

  3. Review the SCA macro procedures related to the capability causing you problems. Extensive macro procedures are distributed with the SCA Statistical System that test most, if not all, capabilities of the SCA System.

  4. Make a printout of the SCA output that was generated during your SCA session. Sometimes it is necessary for SCA's support staff to review or refer to this information in order to diagnose the problem. It is also helpful if you have access to the SCA System on your computer when you call SCA's support staff.

  5. SCA's support staff may require the following information about your SCA System software: (a) Release or version number of the SCA System you are using, (b) your SCA Identification Code, (c) your operating system version, and (d) the exact error message generated by the SCA System.
