Hi Bernd,
one question again :) How Could I define Time Update Sync From Powergold? :)

Thanx, Petr

Please see here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=737
Note the 4 extra fields, which needs to be defined and added to the Powergold "Standard Automation Output"!

There are then two ways to specify a TimeUpdateSync:
The Powergold "EntryType" field must contain the value "CMD" (without quotes)! This value defines a general command in Powergold.
The "Filename" field must then contain a value starting with "TUS" (without quotes)!

The Powergold "EntryType" field must contain the value "UPD" (without quotes)! This value directly defines a TimeUpdateSync in Powergold.
The "Filename" field is ignored in this case!

In both cases a new TimeUpdateSync will be added using the time as specified in the "StartDateTime" field.
That's it.

Some general info about the various import options can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=701

Yes, you can take a look here (the Powergold import follows the same concept as any other, e.g. the Music 1 import):

In addition you can press the '?' icon at the very top right of the import dialog to get help for each option.
This would for example give the following:
File Format: (Filename Format)
Defines the format of the log filename.
The format defines where to find the year, month and day component within the imported log filename. This is important for the importer in order to recognize the correct Date!
So make sure, that the filename format matches exactly the given log filename!

Use the following placeholders to identify the date components:
yyyy or YYYY: 4-digit year
yy or YY: 2-digit year
MM: 2-digit month
dd or DD: 2-digit day
HH: 24-hour digits
mm: minutes

You might use the '_' or '-' character as a placeholder for any other character in the filename.

The default file format for Powergold is "yyyyMMdd" - so a file called "20161231.asc" would denote the 31st of December 2016 as a date!

The Powergold export format further contains a "StartDateTime" column, which tells the importer the target start time within that day.

I hope this now makes it very clear.

The FileName denotes the date and the time column in the export file the time :-)
