Daily Records
« on: April 27, 2022, 01:22:41 PM »
I remember producing a printed daily record of my weather station using copy in the brouse menu of my Weatherlink PC software some years ago. But now all I get are the date and time columns -- no weather data.

Anybody know whether this feature was deleted from the software?

  • Close the Weatherlink program;
  • Locate the files DataLists.dat and DataSets.dat within the WL station subfolder using the Windows file manager such as My Computer;
  • Delete one or both of these files or, if you prefer and wish to be more cautious, simply rename them e.g. by adding a .old suffix to the end of the filenames to e.g. DataLists.dat.old (which would allow recovery of the original files if required);
  • Restart Weatherlink and review the Browse option;

Thank you for your clear and rapid response. I found the files. Will try what you suggest. I guess I do not understand why the problem occurred and whether it will occur again.

Johnd, your instructions worked! I don't know why, but thanks for your advice.
