6.2 Loading operational data

The Operational Data card shows basic information for all imported data, such as name, status (if imported or loaded), type, size, duration and test assembly.

Importing operational data

You can import operational data in two ways:

  • Clicking on + and browsing for the data
  • Dragging and dropping the data

Data importer


In the data importer, you can decide whether the channels should be “auto-mapped” to the master channels. If there are no master channels, they will be automatically created from the dataset.

When importing ATFX files, SOURCE will try to rebuild the project hierarchy to match the way the data was organized in the original application. This feature can be disabled in the Preferences.

Process for loading imported data into SOURCE

SOURCE uses a “lazy loading” procedure that allows you to import the data’s header information before actually loading all of the (potentially very large) data. To load the data, right-click on the desired file and press Load data. When it is loaded, the status will turn from grey to green. It is also possible to unload data by right-clicking on the file and selecting Unload data.

Grouping operational data

When a project contains multiple operational data, it is often useful to group them such that the desired analyses can be performed on the entire group using a single set of parameters. To do so, select all the operational runs that should be grouped, right-click on them and select Group, or use the key command CTRL-G. The group name and test assembly can be edited in the Details card.
