This Information Applies To: Agilent MassHunter Quantitative Data Analysis Software
The "NO DATA POINTS" error message appears in the Compound Information window in the lower-left corner in Quantitative Analysis. Sometimes, this problem may also be described as 'not seeing any chromatogram' or 'no peaks are visible in the chromatogram'. In this situation. A possible reason for this error is the MSTree2.bin file in the data file may be corrupted. To solve this error, see the following procedure.
Steps to follow:
Close MS Quantitative Analysis.
Using the File Explorer, go into the directory where the data files where the issue is occurring, are found. Take the data Y01904017.D as an example - its MSTree2.bin file is located in the folder Y01904017.D / AcqData (see Figure 1). There should be one MSTree2.bin file for each data file/folder in the directory.
Figure 1. AcqData folder files detail
1 - MSTree.2 bin file path 2 - MSTree2.bin file
- Delete the MSTree2.bin file for the corrupted data.
- Re-open Quantitative Analysis
- Reload the batch. A new MSTree.bin file will be created for each data file.
- Reanalyze the batch.
If the preceding procedure does not solve the issue, contact your local Agilent support representative.
