Substrate File Decoding (.slm)

If you were to look at the .slm file in Wordpad you would see each line specifying dielectric layers contains 14 parameters per line.  I beleive I've decoded them below:

Dielectric #, Dielectric Name, Permittivity Format (1=Re, Tand), Er, Tand, Permeability Format (1=Re, Tand), MUr, Tand, Dielectric Thickness, Vertical Starting Position (meters), Vertical Ending Position (meters), ?, ?, ?

Anyone know the last 3 parameters?

Same thing for the conductor layers further down in the file.  Here, there are 13 parameters.

Conductor #, Conductor Name, Vertical Position (meters), Overlap Precedence,?, ?,  Conductivity (Re), Conductivity (Im), Units (Re), Units (Im), Conductor Type (0=Sheet), Conductor Thickness, Units (m)

Anyone know the 2 parameters in the middle of the string?

I've not had any luck finding this in the online help.
