Importing CSV Files
DataLab supports the importing of CSV files (which are text files typically generated by Microsoft™ Excel™). When importing CSV data only the numeric data cells are imported, the text cells are ignored (except for column and row headings).
After clicking the command File/Load/CSV Format... the user has to select the corresponding CSV file. Thereafter DataLab asks whether the CSV file contains column and/or row headings1, and which separator character is used in the file:
After clicking the OK button () the data will be imported and loaded into the data matrix. Unless the separator character is a comma floating point numbers may either contain a dot or a comma as decimal point.
