Import data into your Analysis session

This topic describes how to import data files to integrate into your analysis session.

To import data into an Analysis session:

  1. Choose Tools > External Monitors > Import Data. The Import Data dialog box opens.

    See Import Data dialog box for details.

  2. Select the format of the external data file from the File format list box.

  3. Click Add File. In the Select File to Import dialog box that opens, the Files of type list box shows the type chosen in step 2.

  4. Set other file format options. You must enter a machine name.

  5. To specify custom character separators and symbols, click Advanced.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Select the type of monitor that generated the external data file.

    When opening a new graph, your monitor is added to the list of available graphs under this particular category. See Open a New Graph dialog box.

  8. Click Finish. Analysis imports the data file or files, and refreshes all graphs currently displayed in the session.

    Note: When importing data into a scenario with two or more cross results, the imported data will be integrated into the last set of results listed in the File > Cross with Result dialog box. For more information, see Generate merged graphs.
