      If anyone wants to try it out I've got printing working (I think, my printer is broken).

      You probably should set it to Landscape.

      You won't see the option to print or print preview until you create a month to print and then switch to that month.

      If anyone tries it out let me know if it works for you.  This is also how it will look when I make it so you can save a PDF (but that's not done yet either).

      Probably. But I was able to grab them from version 9. Now printing works well. Thanks, Steve

        Yes you need the files that were in the earlier versions.  Perhaps I should include them each time?

        Don,

        Nice! It picked up data for both April and May now.

        I especially appreciate being able to edit the data before generating the webpage. I had a day with bad rainfall data and was able to correct it and the monthly total in your GUI. The only figure I could not correct was the max daily rainfall calculated at the bottom.

        I was unable to print, I don't know if that feature was supposed to work in this version. Got an error when attempting print preview and print...perhaps I am just missing some files?

        Thanks,
        Steve

        There's a new version that has the changes to the columns suggested by Steve (Rogo) and a decent web page maker.  If you use the web page then make sure you put the noaastyle.css in the same folder as you put the html file.  You can change lots of things using the CSS file.
