Worksheet Overview


In a DADiSP Worksheet, you can display, manipulate, and analyze data in an integrated graphic environment. A DADiSP Worksheet can contain up to 100 individual graphical windows. Each Window can display one or more original data series, series transformations, and numerical computations.


The Worksheet is the heart of DADiSP. Each Worksheet can display and process information in an unlimited number of formats. In addition, each Worksheet can be modified, rearranged, and stored as a template for future use with other data.


Once you have entered a Worksheet, you have access to:


  1. DADiSP's flexible, interactive menu-driven environment with hundreds of analysis, graphic, and data manipulation functions

  2. DADiSP's macro and SPL facilities, where you can define your own functions, formulas, and variables

  3. The user-defined menu system, which lets you configure your own menu-driven working environment

  4. Any Dataset or individual series stored in the current Labbook

  5. ActiveX, the Pipeline and DDE to allows you to run external programs from DADiSP or to read and write data files

  6. Printing facilities enabling you to generate presentation quality output of your data

  7. On-line help


Commonly used functions have been grouped together and made available through easy-to-use pull-down menus. All display and manipulation functions can also be typed and executed at the command line.
