The Data: Connect to File: Text/CSV menu allows you to automatically import a single ASCII file where the data columns are delimited orderly and it consists of few header lines (maybe just a short description for the file and then names and units for the columns).
This tutorial will show you how to Import ASCII file by Data Connector.
Select from Origin menu Helo: Open Folder: Sample Folder to open Windows Explorer to the Samples folder under Origin program folder (by default installed in the Program Files folder). Browse to the \Import and Export subfolder. Open the file S15-125-03.dat in Windows Notepad. You can see that this file includes header lines and data lines. For Single ASCII files, Origin's Data Connector can auto detect file header/subheader and extract this information to the worksheet headers, such as Long Name, Units, etc.
Note: Header lines are lines of text that are not part of the data and do not share the same delimiter formatting as the data. Subheader lines also are not part of the data, but share the same delimiter formatting and therefore correspond to particular columns of data.
