We can provide much better help if you attach two things:  the VI (not a picture, but the actual .vi file) and the data file you are trying to read.

It's because those files have different delimiters.

Original one has "space" as delimiter - and Read Measurement File Express VI does not have such a setting.

The second, "copy" file, has "tabulator" as delimiter - that's why you can read all the data.

You can also read data via function "Read Delimited File" (or "Read Spreadsheet File"), where you can setup delimiter. But then you need to add more parsing to it, to get signal data.

Hopefully, this will help,

Thank you! kosist90

Now I can read the data but date and time does not read. How should I write it or what is the format for reading with Read From Measurement.
