## WeBWorK Problems

### Errror with AnswerFormatHelp.pl

by James Morski -
Number of replies: 3
We created a new course to author some problems and have had issues with the AnswerFormatHelp.pl macro. It seems like WW cannot locate the macro.

My understanding is the WW is looking in each of the places listed in the path in successive order and since the macro is not found, the error is generated. It's not clear to me, though, why this has all of a sudden happened for this particular course, as we have created some new courses over the last few weeks and have not had this issue.

Thanks!

Here is code and the error message:

Has the Library link been created in this course?

Depending on how your modelCourse is set up, the link to the OPL may not be created until the first time you click on the Library Browser.

Try clicking on Library Browser then viewing the problem again.

That's it! What a strange fix, but glad this is now working. Thank you!

AnswerFormatHelp.pl does not live in pg/macros. It is a contribution to the OPL from Fort Lewis. So that is why the bridge to the OPL must be working in order to access it.
