Importing Data

Data > Import

 

 

One easy method of getting data into VisualStat for analysis is to import the data file. By importing data, you don't have to retype the data you want to analyze in VisualStat.

You can import data in VisualStat from multiple sources using either the ODBC technology, or the open command.

 

ODBC stands for Open DataBase Connectivity. ODBC lets you import data from database files. Often, you will not want to import the entire database file. Instead, you can import just the subset of data you are interested in analyzing, such as the data collected during a certain month.
