STATISTICA Visual Basic Library of Matrix Functions - MatrixReadFromDataFile (FileName$, ?FirstCase, ?FirstVar, ?NoOfCases, ?NoOfVars, Matrix)

Parameter

Description

FileName$

name of source STATISTICA datafile

?FirstCase

number of first case from data file to read (0 = first case)

?FirstVar

number of first variable from data file to read (0 = first variable)

?NoOfCases

number of cases to read from data file (0 = all remaining cases in source file or destination matrix, whichever is smaller)

?NoOfVars

number of variables to read from data file (0 = all remaining variables in source file or destination matrix, whichever is smaller)

Matrix

name of data matrix (see Arrays in functions)

The MatrixReadFromDataFile function will read the specified STATISTICA datafile into the array Matrix (see Arrays in functions). If the defined matrix is larger than the contents of the data file, the unused cells are set to 0. If the defined matrix is smaller than the contents of the data file, the extra cases and/or variables are ignored.
