has happened is that an incorrect file name has been entered into the
webwork database when information in the set definition file was used
to build the problem set.|
If students have not yet begun work on the set, the easiest thing to do is the delete the set and rebuild it (Don't do this if they have begun work on the set). Use item 13. "Delete problem set(s)" on the Professor page to delete the set.
To change the file name in the webwork database use item 11. "Examine or modify data for all students" on the Professor page. Look at the "Change problem file names, status, etc." section. Be very careful. Also you should delete any cached images that have been saved for typeset mode --- the cached image may be an error message. You have to do this from the server (WeBWorK is not smart enought to know you changed a file name, seed, etc.). If problem 3 in set 7 is the problem in question, in the $courseTempDirectory (which is defined in the webworkCourse.ph file), cd to l2h/set7/ and then remove all directories containing data for problem 3, e.g. rm -r -f 3-* (be very careful).
