This Information Applies To: Agilent MassHunter Quantitative Analysis Software
Batch Table can be configured with many different data columns. This article uses an existing demonstration batch with method and analyzed data files to view different possible layouts.
Steps to follow
|Tip: Use the demonstration batch file at X:MassHunter/Data/QuantExamples/MS/VOA/VolatileOrganics.batch.bin.|
From MassHunter Quantitative Analysis click File > Open Batch and navigate to X: MassHunter/Data/QuantExamples/MS/VOA/. Select the VolatileOrganics.batch.bin batch file. MassHunter Quantitative Analysis will display the data using the default layout.
Restore the default layout/views before completing this demonstration: Select Restore Default Layout > Flat Table and Display Single Compound / Sample in Batch Table icons on the top right of the Batch Table menu bar.
Information in the Batch Table is separated into several primary sections where each section contains its own group of columns. Select and ordered the columns by right-click the relevant Batch Table Sample header or Compound header > left-click Add/Remove Columns…
There are multiple ways to order the columns of information within each of the primary sections, but you cannot move columns of information between different primary sections. You can drag a column heading to a new position within that section or you can use the Add/Remove Columns… window to change the order of the columns. You cannot change the order of the primary sections (i.e. you cannot place any Compound section before the Sample section).
Click View > Batch Table Layout in the top menu and then click the desired table layout. Alternatively, click the view icons on the top right of the Batch Table menu bar (Figure 1), or right-click menu in the Batch Table to assign a table layout.
Figure 1. Select different table layouts in the batch table
The default view is currently selected with the following view icons selected (Figure 1):
Flat Table – each sample has a single row in the Batch Table and the sample section information is displayed across the table.
Display Single Compound/Sample in Batch Table – displays only one compound section at a time.
