It sounds like you haven't used the correct filename. The OS won't
allow files of the same name in a folder, so I'm guessing the Nisus
file has an extension (probably ".txt"), but you have the Finder set
to not show file extensions. In the Advanced section of the Finder
Preferences window, make sure "Show all file extensions" is checked,
and then look at the Nisus file name again. If it still doesn't show
an extension, select the file in the Finder, choose Get Info
(Command-I), and check that the "Hide Extension" checkbox under the
Name & Extension section isn't checked.
Alternatively, use the following script in a Rev button to find the
full path and filename of the file and comapre it with what you are
answer file "Select a file"
