I have had the same problem when retesting an asset already on the tester but not in the database, I only the first page got filled.
I was wondering if there are there official instructions somewhere on how to upload a database from PG3 to the Apollo (600)? The manual says it isn't possible but the tester and PG3 have options to allow this. I did the following:
In PG3, with the apollo attached via usb cable
* ‘Data transfer’
* ‘upload to tester’,
* select the destination/unit drive as Apollo (as appropriate for your system) and select what you want to upload
* PG3 says it saved a file (.gar) to the Apollo.
From the home page on the Apollo (600)
* 'F4' then '7',
* ‘F3’ and then I selected 'no' to create new upload data (which removed existing uploaded data)
I can see data is there from the Memory list (F4,8) but can’t access it. When I tried retesting a random old asset, it did come back up with a string of numbers that correspond to the test on the last machine I used apart from one digit that was different (no idea why though). However, the new test settings are slightly different so I can’t use it. Retesting a more recent item worked fine though, pulling up both the test setting and the asset details correctly.
FordPrefect, what did you try when you were uploading? The string “I0100000Q111111111” is a shorthand for the settings to use (in your case, assuming the codes are the same as on a Europa plus, this string means a visual inspection only [the I] and the 0’s before the Q tell it to skip everything else).
