Cheers

Hi
the problem is OS has decided to change the data protocol yet again
but there is no information on how that works

I asked the company I brought the weather station from and they said that rumour is that OS are going to "leak" the protocol before the end of the year; fingers crossed.

Is it possible to load data into WeatherDisplay from a Excel file?

I've been downloading the data manually from my WMR89 but would love to display it in WD.

I've attached my data file.

I could add an import function
I see the data is only every hour...

so the software does not allow auto update of that file?

As far as I can tell the weather station only sends 'live' data to the PC for the software to display rather than logging the data in a file. To get the data as I attached earlier I have to select a time period in the past 7 days to download from the station itself (via the supplied software) and then I have to append the data into an ongoing Excel file.

Would it be helpful if I create and share a zip file of all the files I can find on my PC that seem to relate to the weather station?

what file does the software download the data to?
(as WD could just use that, instead of your appended file)

This is the contents of the Oregon software folder. I can't find any other files on my PC, maybe something here will help.

you say that you have to append the data to your spread sheet file...
what and where and how do you do that exactly?

I guess though doing what you are doing you are building up a data file that once imported into WD then you can like view the data in WD..sort of thing...yes?

Here is a video of the export process. As you say all I'm looking for is a way to view the data I'm exporting in WD and update the data periodically until there is a seamless method.

Hi
that software interestingly enough is the same software that comes with the OS WMR300
(would be a wild shot but I wonder if using that station type in WD works?)

anyway, yes, I could add this import function
(you would then import the data exported by the software)

Hi Brian,

I've been away for a few days but I tried the WMR300 options this morning, here is a screenshot

I will look at adding the import your .xml file ability

HI
just realised that your all weather data file is in .xlsx format (i.e excel),which cant be read in ,unless you export it via excel as say csv format
(do that then email me that file)
