Searching for coded items in *-tier

Dear list,

I'm trying to figure out how to search for items coded in the *-tier. Here's a concrete example. In the below utterance (from the Norwegian Simonsen Corpus), the speech of the child Nora is coded for categories/morphology in the *NOR-tier. I want to run a search picking out all elements coded as "@prt" -- particles (highlighted in red below).

*NOR: er&@pr så vond-e at pl å ha&@i på@prt seg så jeg ha-r at pr på meg inne [//] ute=sk [//] inne=sk +//.
%xpho: & So 2vun o 1ha po 7& so j& 2ha p m$&ʘ i:in6 2?u-tn$sk ?n$1d&S

I've tried various combo searches (combo +t*NOR +s at prt; combo +t*NOR +s*@prt; combo +t*NOR +s"@prt"; combo +t*NOR +s"*@prt"… ) but for all of these I get the following error message:

> combo +t*NOR +s at prt @
Can't open either one of the include files:
"prt", "/Applications/CLAN/lib/prt"

Not sure I understand what this means…

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks a lot in advance!
