    DRA will reload from the server if the timestamp is newer than what you have locally. The file in question is vt13_plus.csv. When I look at the file on the server (with FileZilla) the time says 9:15am today. Since I'm on Pacific time and you, presumably, are on eastern time, that could be the source of the problem. You would need to remove that file from your cache. Easiest way is the clear the entire Silverlight cache (Application Storage). If you want to do that selectively you have to find the cache. Let me know if you want to do that and I can help.

      I cleared my browser cache (I use Chrome), and the data is still messed up.

      I don't know how to clear the Silverlight cache. Would it have any adverse effects on my computer? If not, then could you explain to me how to do that?

      Thanks!

        Bring up DRA (or any Silverlight app).
        Right click on map and click on the word "Silverlight"
            You should get a dialog box with multiple tabs
        Click the Application Storage tab
        Select the line that says http://gardow.com
        Click Delete
        Click Yes

        This will clear downloaded files for all the states you have worked on, which will mean they may be somewhat slower to load next you you try them. This does not affect any files you might have saved.

        Good luck.
