Thank you, Hugh. 

I am a brand new convert from WD.   I would willing to serve as beta tester for your add on to bring all my WD files over.

All my wind data is in knots in the Weather Display files. How did that happen I have no idea. I will, however have to do the file conversion over again.

I hate it when one makes such discoveries. Sorry, mate.

Took me 10 minutes to change the code and 20 minutes to run it. Everything looks OK now...

So no major disaster. That's just what checking the results of a program run is for.  [coffee]

This is very odd. I was looking at the records for Windspeed and some other variables. Weather Display shows a maximum wind gust of 93.2 kmh on December 30 of last year at 8:46 in the morning. However, WeatherCat shows the maximum gust for that day at 50 kmh for the same time. I looked at the log files for Weather Display for that exact time and it shows 50.

Hmmm 50 mph = 80.5 kph

50 knots = 92.6 kph

Whaat?????

So, I check the maximum gust for today. It occurred at 12:45 PM. In WeatherCat it is recorded in the log as 45.06 kmh. 28 mph is exactly 46.06 kmh. So I look at Weather Display for the same time. The data is 24.0. 24.0 mph is 38.62 kmh. 24.0 knots is 44.45 kmh. But all the windspeeds in the Weather Display log files have 0 after the decimal place. If you convert mph to knots then 28 mph = 24.33 knots = 46.06 kmh.

Wow.  All my wind data is in knots in the Weather Display files. How did that happen I have no idea. I will, however have to do the file conversion over again.

Sigh.

Sounds that things going pretty well! I have also good experience from weathercat support...

I can beta test if Hugh approves me...  ThU5:-) lol(1)

Later this week I will probably be looking for beta testers, if anyone is interested.

Looks like everything with the original Weather Display files transitioned well.

Just received a reply from WeatherCat support. The workaround is to create X_WeatherCatData.cat files for the missing months with just the header in the file.

Appeared to have worked flawlessly.

I will try to add this to the conversion program to fill in missing months.

Fast and informative service. I am very impressed!
