Throughput file viewed in NotePad

For a typical throughput file of a sine run with 9 channels of data and using notepad to view the data 6 columns of data are produced with many many lins of data.How does one begin to graph this data when using Excel as the graphing tool? TIA.

Hello,  

 

are you exporting the throughput data by right right clicking on the data and exporting to text?  That will provide 3 colums for each piece of data:  X axis, Real Data, Imaginary data.  For time data, the Imaginary data is not included so you will get the X axis and the Real Data only.

 

Since the X axis is repeated for each channel, it is probably easier to remove all instances of the X axis except the first one.

 

An easier way to export the throughput data and also use in Excel plotting later would be to:

a)  Display the time data in a picture

b) Make sure the Y axis format is Real

c) Select all curves and right click to Copy Values - this places it on the clipboard.

d) Paste to excel.  This probably formats it easier than exporting to text first.

e) Again the X axis is repeated for each channel, it might be easier to remove the instances other than the first channel before plotting in Excel.
