Open a TDS raw file

I can export a TDS raw file from my software. How can I open the file in FieldGenius?

Something you can try;
From the Project Manager, either enter an existing job or start a new job -On the screen that permits you to SELECT RAW DATA FILE, pick that button and then pick on COPY EXISTING RAW FILE - browse to the folder that contains the TDS RAW file and pick on it then pick on OPEN FILE - follow the prompts and that raw file is now loaded and active. Anything you record now will be part of that RAW file.

If you do not want anything added to this file, then exit the job and reload it and pick on the SELECT RAW DATA FILE button again and tell it to CREATE NEW RAW FILE. The old data will remain and the new raw file will be used for recording anything new.

RAW file

Postby jmahun » Thu Mar 26, 2009 5:23 am

We're using FG 2006 so don't have a COPY EXISTING RAW FILE option, only the option to select a raw file.
When I do so, one of two things will happen when FG loads the raw data file:
(1) it only reads the first two lines, or,
(2) it locks up in the Reading Raw File screen and only a warm reboot brings the software back to life.
