Overview using upstop
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • UPSTOP is run from a batch file

  • The batch file sets switches and defines the input file.

    • Switches: (0 = no, 1 = yes)

      • Permanent

      • Override address matching

    • Input file name format: logical directory:filename

      • Example – sta:upstop.dat

Using UPSTOP - 2002


Overview using upstop1
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • Create a report containing stop information

    • Usually a TIMS stop or student report

    • Minimum info: school code and stop address/corner

    • Position of fields in record not important

Using UPSTOP - 2002


Overview using upstop2
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • Open the report file in wordpad

  • Use wordpad to replace the school code

    • Search for: old school code<sp> <sp> <sp>

    • Replace with: new school code<sp> <sp> <sp>

    • Check “Match whole word only”

Using UPSTOP - 2002


Overview using upstop3
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • Import file into BUILDTXT program

    • You define position of school code and address in input file when you import

  • Export file from BUILDTXT as upstop.dat

  • Run UPSTOP using upstop.dat as input

Using UPSTOP - 2002


Overview using upstop4
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • Check error files

    • Located in \users\username\tmp

    • Upstp1.err: contains nature of error

      Line School Error Error

    • 330 Stop is not address matched Street one not matched

      OAKLAND AV EX & OLD SECREST AV

    • 330 Stop is not address matched Street two not matched SETTLEMYRE RD & ABEE ST DX

    • 330 Stop is not address matched Street two not matched HOLLAR ST & MOUNTAIN VI ST DX

      59 330 Stop is not address matched Street one not matched POTEAT DR DX & WOODSIDE DR

Overview using upstop5
Overview: Using UPSTOP

  • Upstp2.err: input file containing only errors

    • Fix errors and reuse for second run of UPSTOP
