How do I import data from Microsoft Excel
(or tab-delimited text, dBase or MS Access) into ChemStat?
First, ask yourself why you want to keep
your data in Excel? ChemPoint
is a much better application for storing environmental data. That is
what it is designed to do!
Anyway, there are 3 solutions to your
problem. In order of best to worst, they are:
1. Purchase ChemPoint,
which allows you to enter data using a spreadsheet style interface, or
import data from tab-delimited text files and some other file formats.
ChemPoint can then export the data to ChemStat.
2. Download the ChemPoint/ChemStat
tools and converters. Included is a conversion utility that will allow
you to convert tab-delimited text files (created in Excel) to ChemStat
format. The package includes documentation for allowable file formats.
3. Search the ChemStat Help file for
the topic "Import File Format" and create your data files in
Excel using that format.
For options 1 and 2, be sure to check out
the animated demonstration and training movies on the topic of importing data into ChemPoint.
