Dear Antonio,

This extra output file (*.dat) must be a feature of the implementation 
of the interface in Abinit.

Wannier90 writes the spreads to the main output file (*.wout). Also, if 
you set "write_proj = .true." in the input file (*.win), then the 
projection of each WF on the original bands in the outer window are 
written to the main output file as well. With this information, you 
should be able to achieve what you want.

Best wishes,


Dr Arash A Mostofi
