Ok, the first one seems rather simple but I have a new station online VP2 Plus and I am not archiving data. I completely deleted the station and files and started over and still no database. What am I missing...

Second problem is I need to do a mass edit of the database. Is there a way to connect to it in some other application and do a mass edit? One line at a time will be so painfully slow.

This typically is a symptom of installing the data logger without removing all power from the console.

Remove all power, including the batteries, from the console. Remove the logger. Wait a minute. Reinstall the logger. When you reinstall the batteries the console should beep 3 times if everything is healthy.

Search the forum archives. One of the members has written a utility to easily edit and add records to the Weatherlink database.

Thanks for the tip on the software. I found it and now just have to get it done. sad.gif

The other problem is a wee bit odd. I determined I was only getting 2 beeps when it powered on with the logger and there was no option to modify the baud rate in the set up configuration.

So...

I did purchase an extra console and was using the extra console with the logger. I assumed both were the same since they shared the same part number and looked identical. However putting the data logger in the original console made it work like a charm. Go figure...

I did check for no bent/missing pins and they seem fine. It could be a dud console but guess I won't worry about it now.

Thanks again - Jim

Don't let the warranty run out. Go ahead and contact Davis. They will send you a new console to replace the bad one. As I recall you have 30 days to return the bad one.
