Answer
Access data and event log files on the SD card
A PC with an SD Card reader device or USB adapter is necessary to view the event and data logs kept on the SD Card. Excel 2003 or higher
(for XML files) or the Data Com application (for binary flg files) is necessary to open the event and data logs.

Data logs have the following structure:
Device Name, Device Serial Number, Device Identification, Data Log, Time Stamp.

Event logs have the following structure:
Device Name, Device Serial Number, Device Identification, Event Log, Time Stamp.

To view data or event log files stored on the SD card:
Attach the card reader device to the PC (if necessary) and install the SD card that contains the files in the reader device.
In the SD card directory, open the HACH folder.
Select the Logs folder.
Select a device folder.
The event and data log files in the folder are shown.
To view XML data log files:
Make sure the HachDatalog.xsl style sheet exists in the device folder.
Open the Excel application.
Go to File, Open.
Select the data log file.
In the Import XML dialog box, select "Open the file with the following style sheet applied" and select "HachDatalog.xml".
Click OK to view the data.
To view binary data log (.flg) files:
Make sure the device driver (.flg.drv) file exists in the device folder.
Open Data Com.
In the File Viewer section, click Open.
Select the data log file.
The data log file is shown in the box and a comma separated values (csv) file with the same file name is created. This csv file can be opened in Excel.
