VCDS measuring blocks wrong!

I have an A4 B5 1999 2.8 Quattro.

I'm about to do a timing belt change and wanted to observe Vag-com block 093 before I started to make sure I have installed it correctly when I've finished.

However I have the ACK engine which seems to be mapped differently so 093 contains data on voltage?!

Can anyone point me towards the measuring blocks for the ACK engine?

Thanks in advance!

Any ideas? Would buying ErWin help? Do they have a list of blocks and their descriptions?

Answered my own question by creating a label file in VCDS.

If you have an ACK engine and use VCDS then find the label folder and file 078-907-551-ACK.lbl. Then replace the text in the file with this:

; VCDS Label File
; Audi A4 (8D) / Audi A6 (4
; Component: Engine (#01) - ACK/ALG/APR
; P/N: 4D0-907-551-???
; includes coding and adaptation
; This file is part of a redirection package,
; make sure you have all of the following files.
; 4D-01.LBL
; 078-907-551-ACK.LBL (2.8l E @ 193 HP - ACK/ALG/APR)
