Clientraw Description Documentation

Been meaning to complete this for some time, but just haven't had the time. 

While maintaining the WD-Parser, I had to know what each of the fields in the Clientraw datafiles were, positions and the data type they were.  Originally, this information was gleamed from the clientrawdesc.txt file that comes with WD.

I have now created a series of documents that contain this information in expanded form for others to use.

They cover currently, the following four files.

  • clientraw.txt
  • clientrawextra.txt
  • clientrawdaily.txt
  • clientrawhour.txt

The documentation is available in several forms.

Web Document:

I will now maintain these along with the changes that I make to the WD-Parser when changes or new fields are added to WD.


Hopefully, these will provide an easier to understand document of the contents of the files to lessen many of the questions concerning what they are, how they are formatted etc.

These are currently up to date to version 10.37E Build 15.

Wim, author of the Leuven website template, has kindly made available a more up to date parser which can be used here.

This parser is no longer available (page has been taken down by the author).
