To paste data from the clipboard, first copy the data (in Distance, Elevation pairs) from the relevant application, and select "Input\Paste data from clipboard" from the menu on PC-Convey's Control Panel. Examples of acceptable types of data are shown below:

Example 1 - Copying data from Notepad.

Example 2 - Copying data from Excel - note that you can copy just a part of a spreadsheet.

Example 3 - Copying data from Hec-Ras.

Once you have copied the data to your clipboard you select "Paste data from Clipboard" from the Control Panel:

After reading in the data from the clipboard you will be prompted to enter other data such as cross-section grade, discharge information and Manning's n value(s).

For information on reading data into PC-Convey from a .csv file, please see the next screen.
