How to read the SDR files
There are Five (5) SDR Files mapped to Wisenet Fields. You can open up the SDR files as exported from Wisenet. With a little help from the SDR manual you can make sense of these. Using these field mappings you can see where this data sits in your Wisenet database.
Each SDR File has a File Specification in which there is a table that provides three (3) key pieces of information to help you read the export file. These tables appear near the start of the SDR manual and give:
- Fields: Field Title
- Length: The length of that field
- Position: The column that the field starts in
Although the columns are side by side in the SDR files with no borders between them, you can count the number of characters from the left or open the file using spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel.
