    CALC.DAT is contained in the calc_pids.txt file in post #1 of the Calc.VET thread...

    Copy that calc_pids.txt file to this location (or copy/paste its contents to the file at this location on your PC):

    I think the point trying to be made is that unless I missed it, this CALC.DAT is not mentioned in the tutorial (at least the PDF version I am using) at all, yet appears to be necessary for this procedure to work. The presumption of a tutorial is that someone using such a document probably doesn't know what they are doing (certainly true in my case) and therefore and errors or omissions are going to throw us for a loop, because what we are trying to learn just will not work. So is such a tutorial really helping newbies all that much?

    If CALC.VET and/or CALC.VEN have a red X thru them (on the PIDs tab), then do this:

    on each of the pids that has a red X do rightclick->More Info

    this will tell you why the pid is invalid (red X), it will tell you which other pid has not been selected...

    you then select that other pid and repeat the process.

    Yes, maybe CALC.DAT is not mentioned in the tutorial, but the tutorial does mention dynamic air temperature (in the form of the pid GM.DYNAIRTMP_DMA)...

    and when you study the pid CALC.VET in calc_pids.txt you will see that it uses CALC.DAT....

    Post a screenshot.


    BTW: the pids you should be using are CALC.VET and CALC.VEN... and not CALC.VE.

    Good advice!

    I think what happened in this new twist was this was an addition to origanal Calc VE that is under help and tutorials. Do that one first and then read the twist and it all comes together. But they are both differant. So you may get more confused before it comes clear.
