Importing Data Files
The Import command in the File menu may be used to import MEL Professional v2.x data saved as text files, PsyScope data files, and E-Prime data saved as text files.
E-Prime Text File
The E-Prime Text File option allows the import of an E-Prime file containing raw data. The E-Prime text file must be created by exporting the E-Prime data file (filename.edat3) to a text file using the Export command within E-DataAid. The E-Prime Text File option displays the Import E-Prime Text File dialog box.
Navigate to the folder containing the E-Prime text file, select the file to import and click the Open button. The text file will be imported into E-DataAid as a new, untitled E-Prime data file (Untitled.edat3). E-DataAid interprets all data as strings with the exception of subject and session numbers, and level numbers, which are interpreted as integers.
Not all E-Prime Text Files can be imported. Files which may not be imported include any files containing two or more sessions with the same subject and session number, any files not containing a subject, session or ExperimentName field, or any files containing variable fields without the corresponding level field (e.g., a file containing a field for a trial level variable, but no field for the trial level).
