Tech Note 325 Detail

Unable to import data.

Affected Products:

CI-6870d

Problem/Symptom:
I am unable to import tab-delimited data from Excel. I am also unable to cut-and-paste from Excel.

PASCO Solution:
Changes to support international importing in 1.7.1 have cause two potential problems with importing data:
  1. Certain data points will be omitted if they contain only one digit.

    Work-around: Add ".0" to any single-digit data points before importing.

  2. If the import data text contains a number anywhere in the first two lines, the data will fail to import.

    Work-arounds: Rename the data run to not contain a number before exporting. Edit the text data header to remove numbers before importing.
