Can data be changed?
« on: November 01, 2012, 03:28:32 pm »
I got few records with wrong data.

First I could change some fields of those records through the Data Editor but for whatever reason some values are not recalculated right in the Statistics reports.

What I receive is two days with 0 degrees Low Temp in October 2012.

Is there a way to force a 'recalc' in the system? I guess it is around $YRMINT, $YRMINTT or $MTMINT, MTMINTT?????

Hi George,
The stats should update as you edit the data - if they don't, quit WeatherCat then navigate (in the Finder) to your WeatherCatData folder (this is at ~/Library/WeatherCatData where ~ is your home directory - more info in the manual) - navigate to the year folder of the data you were editing and delete the monthly stats file for that month - this file ends in a '.hrs' extension (it's the hourly data). For example if you were editing data in June 2006, you would delete the file in the 2006 folder. When you reboot WeatherCat it'll rebuild the stats from the raw data.
