Tagged: Plotting selected row(s) from 2D data
I have 2D data with many rows and colums look like this (in excel) :
Is it possible plot line only selected row(s) for data in all columns?
I found mask but, it is exhaustive to create for each column one by one.
Nevermind, I found a solution.
I flattened all the columns , and then plot the value vs category, and then mask using the selected row(s)
Good. Sounds like you found a solution. Here is another way. Select the x and y columns to be plotted and use the Plots command and its Mask sub-command as shown in the following figure in which the # column is used to select the rows of interest:
Hope this helps.
Just wanted to point out the “Plot” command would require the flat format and then mask as needed. And the “Plots” command, as shown nicely above, can work with a wide format.
For anyone that wants to learn about the difference in formats see: How to flatten data.
