Applied Parameters: None

Summary

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

Access

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

Use

First ensure that the waveform that you wish to export is selected. This is achieved by clicking on the waveform name (a selected waveform will become bolder in color and have a dot to the left of its name).

After launching the command, the Export Data dialog will appear. Use the dialog to specify the data (Real, or Complex) to export, and the delimeter used (by default, Comma). After clicking OK, the Export Selected Waveforms dialog will appear. Use the dialog to choose where, and under what name, you wish to save the exported waveform file. By default, the file takes the name of the waveform itself (<WaveformName>.csv).

Tips

  1. When a waveform is selected, filtering is applied, using the name of the waveform as the scope. All other waveforms in the active chart with different names will be masked (becoming dimmed). The extent of the masking - how dimmed the non-selected waveforms become - can be controlled through the use of the Mask Level slider bar, accessed by clicking the Mask Level button, located at the bottom-right of the Waveform Analysis window. If more than one waveform of the same name exists in the active chart, the non-selected instances will remain fully visible.
  2. The waveform is stored as a set of data points, with each point being represented by an XY value pair (where the X-axis value is the time, and the Y-axis value is the value of the signal).
