TDMS files in Dasylab



I am using Dasylab 2016 trial (to see if it will work, we have Dasylab 2013 currently) as a client is providing data in TDMS format.  I am able to successfully read a single file but I can't get the multifile to work despite that we use it all the time.


I get the following error "The multifile was saved with a different file format."  


Attached is the file header for first and second file shown in the read module.


Anyone try this or know why I might be getting this error.   Reading in multiple files without a multifile option makes it nearly impossible Smiley Wink

I will need to see both the worksheets and two or more of the files, please.

There may be issues with the evaluation, since it has a 2 hour run time, and reading back files sometimes confuses the timer.

For everyone's benefit, I was able to get some assistance from MeasX who had some really good suggestions.


Best advice is to use Dasylab to create a TDMS file set first.  Review that using the Excel plugin to examine the header and make sure whatever TDMS file you are providing mimics that.  It's not elegant, but it works.
