With Vernier's Graphical Analysis software you can import and modify data from various applications including word processing software like Acrobat Reader or spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel.

  • If you want to import from word processing programs :
    Type in rows of data separating each data point by a tab. Separate columns with Enter/Return. Save this as text.
  • If you want to import from Excel:
    Run Excel and load or create your spreadsheet. Go to File -> Save As and choose the option Text(tab delimited).

For further information on how to work with the imported data please consult the manual:
