I'm not sure...  I'm not familiar with that format or how that data
source detects changes.  Nicolas?

Yes (I hope...)

Put the field names in the first row.
Put the units in the second row



When you create the file, there is a 'configure' button.
In the configure dialog check
[x] Read field names from line [__1__]
[x] Read units from line [__2__]

It *should* now work.  Let me know if it does or doesn't.
