Import data from Excel

Importing directly from an Excel spreadsheet is available in Atrex 20 and newer.   

For Atrex 19 and older, you will need to convert the Excel spreadsheet to a delimited text file, and then import the contents of that text file.

  1. Open the file that you want to import in Excel.
  2. Use the "Save As" function of Excel and save the file as a Tab Delimited text file.
  3. CLOSE the file in Excel.  If you do not close the file in Excel, it will keep the file open and locked which will prevent Atrex from being able to open the file.
  4. From inside of Atrex, select the appropriate menu selection for the type of data that you are importing from the "Options - Import" menu. 

More detailed instructions on how to use the import function are available by pressing F1 while in the import function (the help is context sensitive).
