The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to export the active chart in comma-separated value (.csv) format.


This command is accessed from the SimData Editor by choosing the File » Export » Chart command from the main menus.


First, ensure that the chart that you want to export is made active in the Waveform Analysis window. This is achieved by clicking on the required analysis tab at the bottom of the window.

After launching the command, the Export Data dialog will open in which you can specify the waves to be exported (Plotted or All), the data (Real or Complex) to export, and the delimiter used (by default, Comma). After clicking OK, a EFile Explorer dialog will open in which you can choose where and under what name you want to save the exported chart file. By default, the file takes the name used on the analysis tab itself (<AnalysisTabName>.csv).


  • The exported file contains data points for each of the applicable source data signals. Each point is represented by an X-axis (time) value, followed by Y-axis (data) values for each available/plotted signal for which data has been captured.
