I've encounter a bug or unknown to me limitation (no such info neither in "User manual" nor in "Command Language Reference"). When the number of point in haul analysis exceeds 1000 (10km with 10m step), a window appears with buggy information:
"MX Error E0097: Invalid string name specification"
Part of working input (1000 points):
HAUL,A1 QUANT,A1070,1=MC10, ,3=VM00,4=10,5=426500,8=436490071, ,2=VOLU, ,5=426500,8=436500071072,1=MC10,2=VM00,3=VH00, ,5=426500,8=436490075999
Part of not working input (1001 points)
HAUL,A1 QUANT,A1070,1=MC10, ,3=VM00,4=10,5=426500,8=436500071, ,2=VOLU, ,5=426500,8=436500071072,1=MC10,2=VM00,3=VH00, ,5=426500,8=436500075999
Is it right or something is wrong? I haven't used is before - spreadsheet did it ;)

I've had a check with a test design here and when I set the analysis to be over 1000 chainage points it shows Error E0719 as below.
"E0719 MASS STRING MUST HAVE NO MORE THAN 1000 POINTS - It is not possible to analyse more than 1000 chainage positions. For example at 20 metre intervals analyses can be carried out for schemes up to 20 kilometres, at 100 foot interval analyses can be carried out for schemes up to 18 miles."
This appears to be an inbuilt limit for the Mass Haul analysis.

Thanks Simon, in such circumstances it seem to me rather as unusable tool - our designs require at least 10m intervals and are almost ever longer than 10km.Lucky there are spreadsheets making possible to overcome this limitations :)
