# Data

Data-func

## Description

The data(x1, x2, inc) function creates a dataset with an initial value of **x1**, a final value of **x2**, and an increment equal to **inc**. If **x1** is set equal to **x2**, **inc** number of points with values equal to **x1** are returned. If **inc** is omitted, **inc** = 1 is assumed.

## Syntax

dataset data(double x1, double x2, double inc)

## Parameter

**x1**

- the beginning value of the returned dataset.

**x2**

- the end value of the returned dataset.

**inc**

- increment.

## Return

Return a dataset with an initial value of **x1**, a final value of **x2**, and an increment equal to **inc**.

## Examples

**Example 1**

The following function fills the first five rows of column A with the number 10.

col(A) = data(10, 10, 5);

**Example 2**

The following function fills column A with 100 numbers from 1 to 100, with an increment of one.

col(A) = data(1,100);

**Example 3**

If the length of the datasets in the columns of a worksheet varies from column to column, the wks.maxRows expression can be used in this function to produce a dataset equal in length to the longest existing dataset (in the active worksheet). The following function fills column A with row numbers from one to the end of the longest existing data column.

col(A) = data(1, wks.maxRows);
