If there is simply an error in the data set, it should print:
Errors occurred while processing [symbol]
and attempt to process the data anyway, omitting unparsable records (and
if every record is bad, resulting in an empty data set). However, there
are other kinds of errors that can occur (some originating in the GUI), so
I need to know precisely what error messages you're getting in order to try
to diagnose your problem.
