Would you mind emailing firstname.lastname@example.org the associated files?
They include the template file (.ods or .odt most likely), the descriptor file (.ctx) and a linked profile (.ini) if you are using one.
Also could you supply the datafile you are working with.
That’s great, Vuong.
Don’t forget to let us know if there is anything further we can help you with.
Thanks for the message.
Before you run any reports in MTE v4.06, select from the top toolbar View >> Settings >> Working Folders. You will find the third line on the screen is listed as the “Override folder for unloaded data“. The default is \Data. Change the folder location to unload data here.
With respect to ensuring data is unloaded into the \year folder (ie, 2017 this year), select from the top toolbar View >> Settings >> Communication. Click on the ellipsis (box with three dots) which will allow you to:
- subgroup unloaded data; and
- define the filename template.
The unload folder path will be shown on the last line.
Trust this helps with your MetroCount experience.
We would look forward to discussing this further as well as other tips, tricks and shortcuts. When available could you email email@example.com and we’ll call you back.
I believe the next step will be to use the vehicle filter settings in the local profile (and hence create a linked private profile to your report) so that you cleanly output ADT and other average vehicle data.
Maybe this would be best to work out over the phone if you haven’t yet used that aspect of MTE.
Would Tuesday 3rd or Wednesday 4th March be suitable?
Thanks for the enquiry. MetroCount Traffic Executive’s (MTE’s) standard reports provide a variety of information in, as you’ve found, a very standardised approach. This is beneficial for most traffic planners and others using such data.
Looks like you’ve begun delving into the Custom Template Report option which is the newest report facility, merging analysed data and statistics into an Open Document template file. From these templates you can produce word processing documents, spreadsheets and even presentation files.
The list of embedded tags is immense – and growing – as we expand the Custom Template Report’s application, especially through client feedback.
To assist you in getting the information into a GIS-required format could I request you provide two things? One being the required data (what do you want to show) and the other being the format (how do want to show it).
MetroCount can provide this service for you and a few examples are shown here.
Look forward to discussing this further.August 27, 2014 at 2:49 pm in reply to: Multiple transformations / conversions of data files #1832
To summarise our discussions, I understand you need to process the 1,073 files into the RAMM report for uploading to RAMM Software database.
I understand your first task is to change the initially entered Site Name for each survey as they currently do not include the required format of 3-digit LA number; Road number; and SLK survey location reference. This requires a manual input on your behalf.
We also reviewed your current process for analysis of the datafiles using MTE and I believe we immediately reduced some inefficient steps from the report creation process.
The next step would be – if you and your client agree – to have MetroCount create the required reports for you, as one order.
Let me know your thoughts on this and look forward to assisting with your traffic data analyses.

Hi Lloyd, thanks for the query.
We can certainly run a batch script on the number of files you are interested in. This requires MetroCount receiving these files (say, on a CD), upgrading the files and returning them with a written script you can use in MTE.
Can you tell me the organization you are from and the MTE version you are using?
We would then contact you directly to discuss, firstly, is this the best report for your end-goal, and then the process to upgrade the files.
Looking forward to your reply.
Looking forward to the first Forum post by a client …
