Import (x,y)-data from Origin project (OriginLab Corp.) directly into MATLAB.

File Information

This function can be used to import paired columns of (x,y)-data from an Origin project file (OriginLab Corp.) directly into MATLAB.
importOrigin, by itself, opens a file selection dialog for specifying the Origin project file to be imported. The function identifies x-y pairs of column data in the specified Origin project and opens a modal data selection dialog for selecting a subset of data sets to import. If no output arguments are specified the imported data will be created as new variables in the MATLAB workspace.

DATA = importOrigin(...); returns the imported data in a structure DATA.

importOrigin uses MATLAB's actxserver to create an Origin COM Automation Server. This means that Origin must be installed on the target computer. More information can be found here:
