7.1.1 Default File Format

Note:

The default file type is *.xle, unless changed in the Application Settings (see Section 4.2.4).

The default file type for Levelogger Software Version 4 and up is *.xle, unless changed to *.lev in the Application Settings (see Section 4.2.4). Previous Levelogger Software used *.lev files as the default. The *.xle file type is a *.xml format, which allows for enhanced functionality. The *.xle files can be exported as *.xml files, which can be integrated into external database programs.

The *.lev files of previous Levelogger downloads are compatible with Levelogger Software Version 4 and up, however, *.xle files are not compatible with previous software versions. To ensure compatibility, all Levelogger Software versions allow data to be exported as *.csv files for use in external spreadsheet programs. See Section 7.3 for Export options.
