Specifying Units

 

When you perform a calculation on a series, DADiSP maintains simple units. Whenever possible, DADiSP supplies correct x and y axis units for any series resulting from an operation or function. Units can be both internally defined or user-defined; however, DADiSP executes calculations based on internally defined units with greater ease than with user-defined units.

Internally Defined Units

The following is a list of the available internally-defined X and Y units.

Note: With real-time units on the X-axis, DADiSP interprets data as time-of-day or day-of-week, starting at the start time of the Window and counting forward in seconds (see the SETDATE, SETTIME and SETDELTAX functions).
