I'm building a label file for a 2002 A6 2.7T (I didn't like the long labels in the ECU label files on the Ross-Tech site).
I have encountered a bit of a head scratcher though.
Occasionally I get a bogus label at the top of a logged column in my .csv file. I imagine that *somewhere* in my file, a label got too long, or I am missing a comma, or something equivalently subtle.
Has anyone had this experience? Guidance for a label file rookie?

Or is Excel "interpreting" things in a way you did not intend? Take a look at your CSV file with Notepad instead of Excel. If they look right in Notepad, then you know it's Excel playing tricks on you.

Mostly, I read the files into Excel right away... I have edited the files to look right, so I'll have to do some more logs...
Also, since my posting, I went through the label file and shortened all the labels to be less than 10 characters or so.
So much for only changing one variable at a time!
I will let you know what I find!

Above each column there is a header with 3 cells. The top one is OK, the bottom one has the units from the ECU reading, this one is OK too. The middle one is the one that is affected.
It looks like this middle cell picks up a word from some other measurement block...
Any idea of what to look for in the label file?

ZIP then up (not because of size, but because your mailer may treat them as plain text and butcher them).

I shortened the really long labels that were in the reference label file (S4 2002 ECU), and the problem seems to have gone away.
If I see it again, I'll .zip the label file, the .csv (raw) and the excel file.
Guilt admission: The other night, I edited the offending log file and (boneheadedly) saved over the original using excel, so I have nothing to send you right now.
