Thanks for all your responses!
Jerome, are you using WHAM from Grossfield lab? That is what I am using.
According to their WHAM manual, time series files are required to contain the information of time and positions. And their commands process the time series files as the starting point.
I understand they are processing the time series files into histograms or counts that will be implemented into the WHAM equations.
My curiosity would be how to direcetly implement NAMD generated histograms into existing WHAM software without modifing their codes.

> I recommended the histogram solution to avoid the downsampling that happens in the trajectory. Apparently your implementation of WHAM requires a trajectory, I am not sure why. One possible advantage of saving a trajectory is that it is not discretized in colvar space, so you can optimize the binning width afterwards. If the histogram is fine enough though, that's not a problem.
