Worksheet Windows

Worksheets store data and analysis pages as collections of graphical Windows. Each individual Window in a DADiSP Worksheet can contain and display one or more data series as a graphic view or a table. The Window may have an analytic "formula" (analogous to a spreadsheet formula) that relates that Window to other Windows in the Worksheet. DADiSP Windows can also contain free-form text and computed numeric values that are driven by data internal or external to the Worksheet.

Rather than working on individual numbers (scalars), DADiSP applies its spreadsheet-like formula capabilities to full series of data vectors. Every time you load a new series into your Worksheet Window, DADiSP will automatically update any dependent Windows.

When you save a Worksheet, DADiSP stores the Worksheet layout along with all of the data and formulas in your Worksheet. You can then reload that particular Worksheet as a display and analysis template to manipulate new data.

Worksheets can be stored with or without data; that is, you can clear the data from the Windows in a Worksheet (using CLEARDATA) and save the Worksheet with just the Window formulas and layout. Worksheets saved without data are called templates and take up less disk space.

DADiSP allows up to 10,000 Worksheets in a Labbook.
