Hi Philipp,
I think I have an output solution that will work for you (I don't know why I didn't think of it before!).

Simply go to the Output | Output Standard and Unknown XY Plots menu and change the "output target" to Output Data to ASCII as seen here:



As long as you don't select one of the quantitative output types, it will just write your data to a tab delimited file, and optionally export it to Excel.  Please let me know if this works for you.

Hi John,

good idea! I tried it and it worked. But I also have the 42 fake standards now (7 HVs * 6 elements). So not certain if it would throw an error.

But it looks like it does not try to read any standard data and just spits out the counts. Maybe you should mention this in the PfE tricks thread.

Thanks
Philipp

I think you should post about this output option and also your "fake standards" method also in the PFE Tips and Tricks topic.  Sounds like it could be useful.  How did you fake standards?  Did you use the simulation mode?

Hi John,

Any chance you could remove the popup window 'bad negative zz' and just log the error message. The problem is it opens the window consecutively many times.

When processing the data, do you do anything different with bad negative zz values. Once I've clicked the message box 20-30x the data often seems ok.


Thanks

Ben

Hi Ben,
I don't do anything with the negative ZZ value, but the matrix correction physics calculations cannot proceed (usually). 

Can you send me the MDB file which contains the problem data points?
