Load Data

The Home | Data | Load command reads a data file into the worksheet but does not automatically open a worksheet window. This data is made available to the active layer if you are making a thematic map.


After you load the data using this command you can view the worksheet by clicking the Home | Data | View command. If the worksheet has already been opened, you can also access the data through the worksheet tab at the top of the MapViewer window.


If the original worksheet contains unsaved data, you are offered a chance to save it with the same file name. Next, you are prompted to select a new data file to load. After a data file name is entered, the original worksheet is cleared and the specified file is read.
