Workbench cannot read terms in MultiTerm

I received a MultiTerm glossary and a TM from a client.

When I try to translate, Workbench gives me the message "(50155): Current MultiTerm database has no fuzzy index."

I wrote to the client, and they created the fuzzy index and sent back the glossary. I still get the same message.

The MultiTerm glossary is protected by a password, and with my permissions, the Edit menu and many items in the File menu (Create Fuzzy index, Import, Export etc.) are greyed out.

Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?

Thank you,

Are you sure you have received all files the second time from your client? Once the fuzzy index is created, only read permission is necessary for fuzzy searches. I don't know of anything preventing this operation during normal circumstances.

Thank you for asking this question!

I checked, and the collateral files were all named with the squiggle (~) that DOS or ZIP add when the path is too long.

I copied the files into a folder on my C drive, renamed them to match the *.mtv file, and now it works!

Thanks a bunch
