RockWorks | Datasheet | File | Open

This topic discusses the steps for opening an existing RockWorks datasheet - an ".RwDAT" file - into the Utilities window. See Opening ATD files for instructions for opening older-version ATD datasheets.

To open an existing datasheet, you have several options:

  1. Using the Project Manager:

    - or -

  2. Using File | Open:

    - or -

  3. Using File | Recent: Select this menu option to choose a file from the recently-used list shown in the window.

The program will load the file information into the datasheet’s rows and columns. The column headers are loaded from the header block listed in the file. The name of the current data file will be displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the program window. You can refer to the ".RwDAT" files in the RockWorks "Samples" folders for formatting examples.
