Incidentally, my own scripts do not need to be told what separator is used between fields, they simply look to see what character appears after the two figure year in dayfile.txt! So my scripts cope with Microsoft deciding how it thinks you want to be set up.

The thread title "Annual Data Summary" is about a web page, it happens to be a web page that I understand well as I helped you produce a new version of the PHP script for it years ago. As Super_T says, I have answered why that page was showing corrupted information, and solved that for him. I have also given a simple solution to avoid overwriting a single remote file, based on the information made available in the earlier post. He says he copied his complete set-up between his machines, that automatically amends local paths; I say he should have manually changed remote path names whereever they are used if he wants to keep his test stuff separate.

If Super-T wants to report a potential issue with Cumulus 1, as you claim, he should be posting in a different section of the forum, i.e. posting in that dealing with Steve's Cumulus 1 software. But there is no evidence that his test system has faulty software, no evidence that Cumulus 1 on desktop is uploading all the files, as his other web pages are showing data from his long-running laptop (e.g. http://www.janter.co.nz/weather/record.htm has data since 2008). His corruption problem was with a single web page that was designed to be simple, and him manually updating a single file with an incorrect format to a location used by his production system.

Are you saying until 29 Sept, you had an upload being performed daily that uploaded the file? If so, you have solved the issue that BCJK refers to. You may have switched off the standard Cumulus every five minute upload, but you had included your daily additional one, and created the issue because you unwisely used the same remote file path and name.

Over and out.
