TDMS File Extension

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Simple question. I assume that some responses may be a simple "Yes" or "No".

Can TDMS files have different file extensions than.tdms, if the file is created by LabVIEW??

Second question, what is the difference to TDMS v1 and v2??

Thanks for your help.

Brenton

Hi Brenton,

There is another format just called TDM. It has a different internal layout to TDMS so if this is a question because you have seen this that could be it (you also have to keep the index with a TDM file). If you just want a custom extension there is no issue, just no other application other than yours will know it is a TDMS file so you will limit what will open it directly (there are ways around this with LabVIEW and DIAdem, not sure about excel).

As for v2 I am not sure on the internals but there is an FAQ at http://www.ni.com/white-paper/9995/en. In short 1.0 is deprecated (but still an option if required), I would use 2.0 for new designs.

Right - we have a couple of projects that just use *.bin (or something more appropriate to show it's related to a project) so ppl are less inclined to accidentally find out that it's TDMS.
