ID: 11 🔗 Closed (Fixed) datatool 2.11 2012-12-27 18:22:24 typo in source (should be \PackageError instead of \PackageErrors))

## Report

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{datatool}
\begin{document}
%%%%%\DTLnewdb{database}%
\DTLnewrow{database}%
\end{document}

Hello Dr. Talbot,

when compiling the minimal example above, I'd expect to get the following message about a package error:

| ! Package datatool Error: Can't add new row to database database': database do
| esn't exist.
|
| See the datatool package documentation for explanation.
| Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

But the following TeX-error-message is delivered:
! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \PackageErrors
{datatool}{Can't add new row to database database...
l.5 \DTLnewrow{database}


I think, there is a typo somewhere in the datatool-bundle and instead of "\PackageErrors" it should be "\PackageError" (without a trailing "s" in the name of the control-sequence).

According to the .log-file

Package: datatool 2012/09/25 v2.11 (NLCT)

was in use when encountering this.

Sincerely

Ulrich

### MWE

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{datatool}
\begin{document}
%%%%%\DTLnewdb{database}%
\DTLnewrow{database}%
\end{document}


## Evaluation

Fixed in v2.13 (2013-01-15).
