I have a VIOS file that we generated from an ftip file using PPS. I load that file into the AMS software to do optimization and feeder distributing.

I have a few things that I need to do to every workorder that I create but they are fiddly to do in the AMS software. I have reverse engineered most of the VIOS text file and have determined what nearly every bit of information in the file is except for two hex characters, I could automate the process but for this.

In &B.MNT: -79.096 109.423 0.000 270.000 0A0000FFFF0101000565FFFFFFFF0000 C172

The two that I don't know are the "65" in the hex string. If anyone knows that I'd be very greatful.

You're a complete stud! It's the mount order of the head. It adds 100 so that it flags to go load up the heads again with parts. It was the +100 that I didn't pick up on.
