If I can get some example files in both formats, I can get this added to my 'AsBuilt Explorer' tool in the next week. All my programming has been done for a while. It's just a matter of testing before publishing a new version.

Ideally, my program should compare the integer values, and so should be able to compare an old-format file with new-format file without converting. Ideally.

I've updated the tool on my site. It can now compare both ABT formats, and can convert between them, as well as UCDS format.


Thanks for the info, fordsmax471

Why are my module backup files saved in a .cct format?

@clockWorK - this is a very cool program! Thank you for developing that. I have a question about the .cct data or CCC_DATA as it's called in the Ford .ab format: is it possible to read in .cct data we saved using FORScan to compare to what is in our .ab file from Ford? I notice it does not seem to be possible to read in .cct files and the CCC data is not part of FORScan's .abt file. Thanks!

Also would it be possible to have an option on the "Compare As Built" tab to hide rows that have "Same?" as Yes (to make it easier to spot differences).

I will look into it. I will need some .cct files. I don't know much about Central Configuration.
