    On the official website of the chart company scottish charts are available but for some reasons a few months of 2005 are missing.
    The period is from to march (maybe) to september.
    What is the reason? The chart stopped or is it a mistake of the website?
    Also someone have the missing months?
    Can you help me please?

    Thanks

    This is an error on their part. When they built the database they didn't do the best job in the world. So they are missing.

    They might be in ChartsPlus at least in part. I donít think I have the original files. If you post the dates missing below I can check. I donít think they are the only ones.

    At that point the physical chart and the main chart where the same as far as I am aware. Maybe I can be corrected if Iím wrong?

    In terms of the Scottish chart I donít have these but much of the Top 75 can be found in ChartsPlus as they listed the chart alongside the main chart for those entries in the main top 200. I havenít catalogued these unfortunately.

    I believe that the compilation chart and indeed all charts seem to be in error and missing for that period. Again not entirely sure on that point as I havenít gone and checked them all. But I do wish theyíd fix it!

    2002 onwards can be got from charts plus. I think Iím one of only a few with the pre 1994 charts typed as Top 50ís. Indeed till at least 1992 thatís all that was compiled officially. Not sure when a Top 100 started but now the occ do compile a Top 200. They have since at least 2007.

    Hit Music published the Top 50 from 1992 onwards, and from 5 March 1994 (week 4 of the Millward Brown tenure of compiling the charts) they include positions outside the Top 50. So the first one is position 49 has a lwk pos 54. Meaning that a Top 54plus is compiled form that date. Now, the other thing of course is that Hit Music clearly had access to files which included the starred out records, which they renumbered for the Top 200 Singles/Albums they published. So did they have a Top xxx that they just used? I don't know. There are no more positions outside for some time, until 14 May when number 35 climbed from 200. So they at least had that. However, 27 Feb 1999 had a climb to 47 from 569 the week before, meaning that they might well have just looked at the online full sales list and numbered accordingly.
