How to extract/import data from large .csv files
Thu, 06/23/2022 - 10:20 am
I have dozens of data files I collect in my lab that are 2-dimensional wavelength (256) vs. time (1000) traces. The files exported by the instrument are large and not in an easily digestible format. I can manually extract and transpose them in excel myself, but this is time consuming and a pain when there are multiple files to work up. Is there an easy way for me to code a macro up in Igor to import specific columns, transpose them, and rename them into individual waves?
I have attached an example file of the instrument output and the format I usually convert them to before copy/paste importing them into Igor.
