/home/myself/databases is the source ascii file directory in .txt

/home/myself/mycatalogs/mycat is the directory for the catalog to be

I have tried 2 scenerios to update the files using the offline command.

cd /home/myself/databases
/home/myself/interchange/bin/offline -c mycat -d /home/myself/databases

builds the databases in the directory specefied....what to do from

next I tried 
cd /home/myself/mycatalogs/mycat/products
and overwriting the .txt files to the
/home/myself/mycatalogs/mycat/products/  directory 
and then used this command;

/home/myself/interchange/bin/offline -c mycat -d

this builds (actually it appears to append the files) to the databases
in the /home/myself/mycatalogs/mycat/products/  directory 

After restarting the interchange server, it works in the first scenerio
but does not seem to be changed.

In the second scenerio I get a server error indicating an internal error
or misconfiguration. More details on this procedure would be helpful and
tips greatly appreciated. These are VERY LARGE databases and can not be
