Error with path location in Builder mode

If this template helps then use it. If not then just delete and start from scratch.

OS: Windows 8.1
PsychoPy version : v1.84.2
Standard Standalone? (y/n) Yes

Hi there,

I’m trying to create a simple self-paced reading task in the Builder mode. Every time I keep getting an error (screenshot attached) message saying that PyschoPy is unable to locate my source Excel file. I’ve tried correcting the path and I’ve also tried to store the file in different locations, but nothing has worked. Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

I think it’s still probably as simple as the path not being entered correctly (though we’ve all been there). In your example posted here, it’s looking for it in C:\Users\Users (you have Users twice), which I doubt is correct.

You could always put the excel file in the same folder as your .psyexp file, and just give the file name (stims.xlsx), and it should work.

Thank you, Daniel. I put the Excel file in the same folder as my .psyexp folder and it worked. Thank you for the advice!
