AbstractThis report presents one of a number of methods for data retrieval from the VMS operating system, into the PC environment. For the purpose of illustration, examples from the Bergy Bit project (PJ97837) have been used. It is the purpose of this repor to outline the method used to transfer data for the BErgy Bit project into a manageable format for futher analysis. As the data is initially stored in a single binary, direct-access data file (DAC file), there becomes a need to transfer it into a data analysis computer program. In this case the sesired program was Microsoft Excel. When all measured data has been transferred, some analysis will ensue. Mainly a measured tow force will be deriveds as well as peak values of other measured parameters.
