Text Data Source Dialog Box

This dialog box is used to import data from one or multiple text files into one or multiple data tables or into a single data sequence.

File Source

The grid control in this group box can be used to specify the data files whose data need to be imported. Double clicking a cell under the Source Path column opens the File Open dialog box with which the user can browse the data files. The values in the cells under the Persistence column determine the data persistence modes (i.e. Embedded or Linked) for the files.

Import file(s) as a data sequence

Check this check box to import the data in the files into a data sequence.

File Structure

Auto skip header lines

Check this check box to have DataScene automatically skip header lines. 

If both this check box and the Delimited columns check box are checked, DataScene will use the data in the last row of the data file to determine the number of header lines to skip; if both this check box and the Fixed-width columns check box are checked, DataScene will skip all header lines in the data file whose widths are smaller than the specified column width.

First line as column names

Check this check box to read column names from the first lines of the files.

Number of header lines to skip

This text box is enabled only if the Auto skip header lines check box is not checked. The value in this text box specifies the number of header lines to skip. 

Delimited columns

Check this radio button if the columns in the data files are delimited by a specific delimiter.

Fixed-width columns

Check this radio button if the columns in the data files are of fixed widths.

Delimiters/Format

This combo-box is enabled only if the Delimited columns radio button is checked. The value in this combo-box specifies either the column delimiter(s) or the file format. The user may select one of the pre-defined delimiters or directly type in one or multiple custom delimiters into this combo-box. If CSV Format is selected, the input files are treated as in the Comma Separated Values (CSV) format.

Number of columns

This text box is enabled only if the Fixed-width columns radio button is checked. The value in this text box specifies the number of data columns in the data files. Use the grid control beneath this text box to specify the individual column widths.

OK

Click this button to import the data files and then close this dialog box.

Cancel

Click this button to close this dialog box without doing anything.
