My colleague wrote a tech report in which she stated that she collected 12 sets of data, sampled at 4kHz for 3 seconds with LV 2.0 on specified hardware (I have the board numbers if that would help), so I'm expecting about 144k numbers (4000 x 3 x 12). We use the read binary, and get ~40k values (on a Mac running LV 8.2), but that defaults to the Win file order and 8bits/DBL. What I can't find/figure out is how many bits/what format these data files were saved to. There are several hundred data files, so I (obviously) would prefer to automate this reading. Another (similar) tech report reports 9 columns of data, but still sampled at 4kHz for 3 seconds, so ~40k data points is not enough either way. If you want me to, I can post a representative data file, but they are NOT small, and I'm uncomfortable parsing it.
I inherited a couple of 3.5" floppies of which one is not readable by either Mac or PC format, so I'm guessing that had the vi on it.
Thanx for helping!

Sorry it took me to long to get back.. Does it matter if I upload it from a PC or a MAC at this stage of the game?
(There are only 13 plots, so disregard the legend size ;))
