Import survey data

Softdrill NL   

 

Survey (or wellplan) data may be imported in one of the three following manners:

 

1.Select the [Utility] - [Import surveys...] option in the main menu,

2.Use the [Import surveys] button on the tool bar,

3.Right-click the survey data grid and select [Import surveys...].

 

The following dialog box will appear:

 

Import file

Click the ellipsis button [...] to select a file containing the survey input data.  Any text file containing at least three columns for Measured Depth, Inclination and Direction is acceptable.

As soon as the file is opened, the data will be displayed in the Import Data grid (see 8).  Data may appear scrambled, but this may be corrected by adjusting other settings in this dialog box (see below).

 

Paste data

If data, containing at least three columns for Measured Depth, Inclination and Direction was copied to the Windows clipboard (e.g. three columns from an Excel sheet), clicking this button will display the data in the Import Data grid (see 8).

 

Value separator

Select the character separating the columns in the import data.  The Import Data grid will automatically be adjusted to display the effect of changing the separator character.

 

Number of lines to skip

Some data files may contain one or more comment lines at the top.  Adjust this value to skip import of these lines.   The Import Data grid will automatically be adjusted to display the effect of changing this value.

 

Depth units for imported data

This field should be set to the depth units of the import data. It will automatically be set to the current unit in use, but should be changed if the import data is in a different unit to ensure correct conversion when importing the data.  For example, if Torque & Drag is currently set to Meters, but a file containing Measured Depths in Feet must be imported, this field should be set to Feet.

 

Column assignment

Set these fields to assign which column in the import data should be imported to Measured Depth, Inclination and Direction respectively.

 

Import mode

Determines the manner in which the data should be imported.

 

Import data

Displays the import data as it would be processed with the current settings.  Red indicates the column that will be imported as Measured Depths, Green indicates the column that will be imported as Inclinations and Yellow indicates the column that will be imported as Directions.
