Update Extracted Data

Extracted data in a table can be updated either manually or automatically.

Extracted data can be updated so that it is current with the data source. You can manually update the extracted data, whether it is output to a data extraction table or to an external file, or rely on a notification to display when using certain trigger commands, such as SAVE or PLOT. You can then choose to update the table from the Data Extraction - Out Of Date Table dialog box.

NoteExtracted data in external files is not checked to see if it is current with the data source, and notification does not occur.

Update an Attribute Extraction Table

You can update the contents of a table that was created using the Attribute Extraction wizard. Before it can be updated, the table first needs to be converted to a data extraction table.

NoteThe width and height of columns of the attribute extraction table are not retained after it is converted to a data extraction table.
