8.37. "Could not initialize Goal Seek"

Applies to:
@RISK 6.x/7.x, Professional and Industrial Editions

I'm trying to do a Goal Seek in @RISK, but when I click the Analyze button I gett this error:

Could not initialize Goal Seek

What is wrong?

In the Options dialog of Goal Seek, the comparison accuracy is 0, Please select Percent of Target Value or +/– Actual Value, and enter a number greater than zero.

Though the problem is real, the message unfortunately doesn't describe it correctly. This will be fixed in a future release of @RISK.
