When printing final, you get this error message

"Error during Cover Sheet print, possibly due to missing .DAT file"



Possibly missing the .DAT file for the .BMP logo file you're trying to use.


In your folder; C:\HES\HydraCALC\VER50\Data\Setup\Reports, make sure that for every logo, you have a matching file .BMP & .DAT file.

For instance, if your company logo is called 'MYLOGO.BMP', you should have a file 'MYLOGO.DAT' in the same folder.  Copy and rename the file NOLOGO.DAT and rename the file while leaving the extension alone.  


The image you're using is too 'complex'


The .BMP file had a transparent layer which likely causes the error

1. Open MS Paint (these steps work for Windows 11 MS Paint).

2. If you notice a transparency, add a new layer, make sure the canvas is square and fill it in with white.

3. Push the background layer to the back so your logo is visible.

4. Do a 'save as' and make sure to save as a flattened image.

You should be all set.
