It’s a bit difficult to tell from that thumbnail image, but it looks like it may be a problem with the data in dayfile.txt. There maybe error messages about this in the diags file, or it may be obvious from just looking at the file what the problem is. Check that the date formats are consistent, they all need to be dd/mm/yy

Try as I might, I couldn't see anything wonky in the dayfiles or the logs. The graph really never changes though I verified it and the T file are both in the right place both here and via FTP. Hate to reset all … think I'll just leave it as-is until I can get a better handle on it.

Thanks!

I am assuming that a Zephyr TD-1000 is an Fine Offset look alike? If that is the case I saw these sort of results when the logger interval for the new data on the new PC got set to a different value from the existing data. Try checking the logger interval using Steve's utility at the bottom of the download sections here http://sandaysoft.com/downloads

Yes, correct. It is a fine offset.

I downloaded an ran Steve's Setlogger utility. It did change the timing from my manual entry of 3 minutes to 10. Could be it. I'll watch it closely. Many thanks for the suggestion. Fingers crossed.

What have you got the daily graph number of days set to? I'm afraid I can't remember exactly where that setting is!
