PC-GIS X cannot find the Shapefiles

“I am working on a project with the PC-GPS X software and I am not having any luck importing a shape file. This is the first time this has happened . . . If you don’t mind I am going to attach the shape files to this email and would like to see if you have any luck just to be sure it is not the software itself. . . Kind of a weird deal though and maybe it is because it is Monday. Also, I import the shape files in NAD83 Zone 15.”

The error message is about PC-GIS X not being able to find the specified Shapefiles.

Each of your file names contains a “.” symbol other than the one separating the file name from the file name extension.

Please rename all the files by replacing that “.” with a “_”.

Then you should be able to import the Shapefiles.
