LMS Test.Xpress Export all to matlab


After data acquistiion I typically like to post-process using matlab.  I can export single files to matlab by right click > export and selecting .mat files.


For larger projects is it possible to export all files to matlab?  When I use the export all function when right clicking the dataset there is no way to select a file type.

Two steps to export all datasets to Matlab:


1)  Highlight Datasets and change Save Format to *.mat.  Note Export Folder as well.

2)  Right click on Datasets and Export all.


The *.mat files will be in the Export Folder.


I suggest changing the Save Format back to .xdf afterwards otherwise your next measurement runs will also be in matlab format.

You can also let Test.Xpress do the xdf -> mat conversion automatically when the measurement ends.


1. Click on Measurement - Setup in Settings tab

2. In Properties change Save Format to *.mat

3. Select whether you want to save the *.xdf files too or keep only the *.mat files


At the end of each run, the *.xdf file will be converted automatically to *.mat.
