Hi Daniel,

as described here https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/2020/pages/system-type-climate-and-grid/meteosyn/#options your file should probably look like the one I attached?

There were several steps todo:

  1. Format the header as requested (longitude, latitude)!
  2. Use \t (TAB) as separator instead of , (COMMA)
  3. Set your linefeed operator to CR LF (Carriage return, linefeed) as this is the preferred one by windows

I guess that's it? You need to set your location name in the file, otherwise it is listed as the one I used.

Best regards,
