I was able to record from my vehicle OpenCAN the messages in Hexadecimal using Dewesoft, but how do i further read the data in normal numerical values?

You can add channels for each CAN message in the CAN channel setup and decode the values from raw hex stream. If you have a DBC library describing the messages, you can also import the library and have all values decoded automatically.

I am having a similar issue as Steven.  I have collected the CAN data but it is in hexadecimal and when I export the data to my analysis software, I cannot find a way to easily convert it to decimal.  I do not have a DBC library (I just scanned for the CAN messages, and set up the channels manually); is there a way to make a .dbc file from my CAN set-up channels in Dewesoft X?

@DEWESoft Administrator do you have a demonstration on how to do this?!
