I am trying to read several .dat files from a certain folder by specifying the path in Mathcad 15.
I wonder if there is any script function to do that instead of inserting all the files one by one?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If your files are sequential in their name - "data_1.dat", "data_2.dat", etc., you can write a program loop that will read the data from each file and place them all in a matrix. This approach worked very well for me.
Hope this helps!
Yes - what Luc has shared is very similar to what I have implemented. You can get a bit more complicated by monitoring the size of any data file and reading files that have different row and column counts. Units can be read-in as well with some other tricks (of course the data needs to be set-up to accommodate this), but Luc has captured the fundamental approach well.
Is there a way that we give the path and the file ext, and then Mathcad returns all the files having that ext?
