Edit the Action file to tell WUHU which csv files to create and where

Edit the C:\Program File\WUHU\action.txt file so it contains one line for each webpage you want to create

Example:

template:"C:\Program Files\WUHU\csv.txt" "C:\wwwroot\data1.csv"
template:"C:\Program Files\WUHU\csv.txt" "C:\wwwroot\data2.csv"
template:"C:\Program Files\WUHU\csv.txt" "C:\wwwroot\data3.csv"
...

All the variables are contained in the template csv.txt example file. This file is just plain text file. You can format or order of the data values using notepad or any other editor as long as the variables start with % and end with %

A full list of variables can be found in the output of the currdat.lst

Append to a date to a file

To append to a file with each update, instead of replacing existing information, add a + character to the end of the path and filename of the output file.

Example:

template:"C:\HeavyWeather\CSVTemplate.csv" "C:\HeavyWeather\CSV%Y%U.csv+"
...
