Editing Experiment Name
The experiment name may be edited with the restriction that every session must have an experiment name, the experiment name cannot be white space, and it cannot exceed 80 characters in length. To edit a session’s experiment name, select a cell in the ExperimentName column for any row containing data for that session. The application will acknowledge the edit when the Enter key is pressed, the cell is exited, or the file is saved.
Each data file may contain sessions from different experiments, and each session stores the name of the experiment to which it is related. Therefore, when an experiment name is changed for one session of data, only the cells related to that session are modified. To change the experiment name for more than one session at a time, use the Replace command in the Edit menu.
A file can contain data sessions from more than one experiment. Therefore, when a session’s experiment name is modified, the application checks for values which will result in a duplicate subject number, session number, and experiment name combination. If the combination of subject number, session number and experiment name is duplicated in the data file, the application will display a warning, and the user will be given the opportunity to cancel the operation.
Editing a session’s experiment name will mark the file as containing altered data, will store an annotation with the session, and will update the modified dates for both the session and the data file containing that session. Modified dates may be viewed in the file’s properties.
