 How to Acess Lab Data for Review

Excel Data Files:
Excel files containing laboratory data submitted by lab groups during the lab activities will be uploaded to the web following lab. Excel files may be downloaded from this web page (see below) and used on any computer capable of reading Microsoft Excel files. If you do not have access to Microsoft Excel you may be able to use a free product called OpenOffice from Oracle:

http://www.openoffice.org

PowerLab Data Files:
You may find it beneficial to save LabChart Data Files to work with at home (i.e. to continue your analysis and/or practice with data). PowerLab (aka LabChart) data can be saved to a USB drive during lab and taken home for review (be sure to save copies in both Mac and PC formats from the dropdown menu in the Save dialog box).

Get a printable page of instructions for saving LabChart data files here.

To review these files at home you will need to download the free LabChart Reader software available from ADInstruments:
