Database Questions
« on: June 20, 2010, 10:04:00 AM »
I'm running V14.00. p103, davis station.  I have two database questions:

1.  my version has 20,000 records max in the database.  what happens when that number is exceeded? is the older data lost?

2.  when i look at the archive data folder, daily/monthly/yearly, i see individual text files with the date as the filename. when i open this file (using text editor, not bin files) i only see data for the 'Raw Barometer' no other datapoints (see below). how come it's not archiving all the other database items such as temp,wind, etc.

Parameter                   Max   Max Time        Min   Min Time    Average
Raw Barometer             29.10     7:00am      29.08     3:45am      29.09

The answer to your first question is no, they do not disappear.

They are moved over to a database file named xxxxdbase.csv, those x is the year.

Go to "settings" "file settings" . When there, click on create/modify files list. Then you can "tick" the files you want to create an archive for....
