Data file import

The user can import directly into the MCG tools a properly formatted file that contains the actual data for analysis.

MCG Tools File Import Button

On the 'MCG tools setup' worksheet you will find the 'Data import' button.  Press this button and a standard Windows file open tool appears that is used to navigate to your file for selection.

If you are opening a file that was created by the DMIS part program, the location and name of the file was previously established when the DMIS sequence generator was completed.

The import tool supports two basic formats.

DMIS output file:

FA(PT1)=FEAT/POINT,CART,149.065,-13.053,-0.005,0.996191,-0.087199,$0.000000

ASCII text:

-74.81179 74.81179 105.79985

Each co-ordinate is separated by a character.  The separator can be a space, tabulation or a comma.

When imported, the data poulates the 'Data' worksheet.
