Data Table View

For advanced users dealing with spectral information, they like to see any 2D data as numbers too. This function is useful to allow some calculations by hand or copy spectral data to other applications. The 2D data view can be simply toggled to show data either as graph or in a data table. Respective commands are described in the Show Data in Table command section.

The data table can be copied into the clipboard!

The default table functions of the software also apply to this data table. For details, please refer to the Working with Tables section.


A default data table for a 2D data object looks like this:

Showing current zoom region in a data table

For convenience only the active zoom region of a graph view is taken into account when toggling to the data table. In this case, only data points of the zoomed region are shown in the data table. This allows users to extract exactly what they need from a vast amount of numbers.

To see all available data points in a table, one must perform an Auto scale command in advance.

Showing merged 2D data in a data table

If several 2D data objects have been merged into a data view, they can be shown in a table as well. Besides the x-axis column, for each 2D data object a separate data column is available in the table. The column header shows the name of the data object.

Some table fields contain (null) value!

If data with different resolution or number of data points are merged, they can of course be shown together. In the data table view, some data points might not be available for one particular 2D data object where they are for another. In this case empty fields appear being filled with the (null) value.


Merged data looks like this:

Copy data table to the clipboard

The contents of the data table is easily shared with other applications by copying the contents into the clipboard.

Copy single or multiple rows

  1. Click into the first field of the row of interest using the Left mouse button.

  2. To select multiple rows, hold down the SHIFT-key or the CTRL-key and click the rows of interest subsequently.

  3. From the Edit menu, select Copy.
    Alternatively, use the keyboard shorthand.

Start the target application and paste the clipboard contents.

Copy the whole data table

  1. Click into the grey field in the top left corner of the data table with the Left mouse button.

  2. From the Edit menu, select Copy Full Data Table.

Start the target application and paste the clipboard contents.

Some contents cannot be copied!

Some data might be copy protected, e.g. commercial spectral libraries. In order to protect the owners copyrights some contents are not allowed to be copied.
