Hi Steve
I wanted to backdate the values for the RG11 record. I opened the sep12log.txt with excel - recalculated the rg11 values and made sure that all the decimal places were correct for all the columns and saved the result as a csv file. Then renamed it to txt. Although it looks identical to a backup I made of the sep file it appears not to be read by cumulus in the select-a-graph. If I go back to the backup all is OK.

Without seeing the file, it's impossible to comment.

Ah, yes, that's the usual problem when using Excel.
