Importing Climate Data into PVSol

Recommended Posts

Hi Martin,

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I am having a challenge  uploading my last two (2) measured climate data files into PVSol. I have converted the files into .DAT  format, as per the instructions but I keep getting "Conversion failed, Formatting error" message  whenever I try to upload same into PVSol. 

I have attached the two (2) files for your kind review and support. Could you please convert them into .DAT file for me.  I am  using  PVSOl Premium 2019 (R10)

Hi Dongash,

I guess it is line 3, as mentioned in our previous conversation, and the whitespace (space) right after the column name "Ta". Copy the values from your Excel sheet to a text file, remove the (invisible) tabs in line 3 and at the end of lines 1 and 2, remoe also the whitespace after Ta in line 4 (only the space, not the tab), then save as *.dat. That should work.


This doesn't import.


This works.

Hope that helps, kind regards,
