Hi Will

Thank you for your post.

The easiest way to go about doing this is to open the .plw file in Picolog and then either Save As a .txt file, or open the spreadsheet and copy and paste the data out.

Hope this helps

Best Regards

I am also trying to convert a .plw file into something that excel or origin can read. I have tried opening it in the picolog program (version 5.13.0), but it doesn't seem to work. Whilst the file does open and report how many samples it has, there is no further data displayed, a graph is blank and a speadsheet is similarly empty.
Apparently this did not happen on the previous version we were running, but that was before my time here.
Any help or suggestions vastly appreciated.

Thank you for your post.

It sounds like a difference between how the versions saved the file. I would reocmmend installing an older version such as 5.08.6 as this should be able to read it.

If you require a copy of this version then please let me know at tech@picotech.com with your full address and a link to this topic.

Best Regards
