The problem described appears in Chenomx NMR Suite v6.1 or earlier. All subsequent releases should handle MestReNova JCAMP files natively.
If you are using an affected version of Chenomx NMR Suite, you can adjust JCAMP files to allow them to be opened. Simply open the file in a text editor (e.g., Notepad, Wordpad, vim, Emacs, etc.), and replace all instances of ‘NMRSPECTRUM’ with ‘NMR SPECTRUM’ and ‘NMRFID’ with ‘NMR FID’ (i.e., insert a space after ‘NMR’). You can use the relevant search and replace functions in your text editor as needed.
If you have a large number of affected JCAMP files, you can use tools like grep (Linux and Mac) or grepwin (Windows) to change the text strings in all of the files in a single operation. Please be sure to backup your data before attempting any large scale changes of this nature.
