Rigol DG1022 AFG modified CSV

(1/1)

wasssup1990:
I have a recently bought Rigol DG1022 AFG and I'm having trouble trying to get the PC based software to accept a CSV file that has been aquired from a Rigol DS1052E DSO and modified in excel.
What could I be doing wrong here?

Thanks.

Almost anything. If it's like the agilent software then it's very picky about the CSV format.

For me, Excel tended to put a lot of extra commas in the CSV file where there were empty cells in a column that had a value in it somewhere. The Agilent software hated that. Open the CSV file in notepad (or similar) and compare it to a known-good file.

I'll give that a try when I have a chance. Comparing files on a byte level might tell me where excel is making the critical alterations. I'll use winhex.

Mechatrommer:
found this old thread, but... no need to compare byte level for csv format, its just a simple plain comma separated text, do it in notepad instead of winhex is enough. see ya!
