The File | Reload Data or Graph Tools | Worksheet | Reload command is used to apply changes to graphs, plots, and linked text when changes to the data are made in programs other than Grapher. For example, if you have a data file open in Excel and make and save changes to the data file, you can use the Graph Tools | Worksheet | Reload command to display the changes in the plot document.
The File | Reload Data or Graph Tools | Worksheet | Reload command reloads the data from all sources that are in the active document. For example, if the active plot document uses data from five separate sheets in two separate XLSX files and you make and save changes in only one sheet in one XLSX file, the Reload Data or Reload command will reload the data from all five sheets.
To show changes in a graph when data is edited in another program:
- Make changes to the data in a program other than Grapher.
- Save the changes in the other program. If you do not save the changes, they will not appear in the graph.
- Click the File | Reload Data or Graph Tools | Worksheet | Reload command.
If you are editing your data in the Grapher worksheet, use Auto Track Worksheets, not Reload. If you make changes in the Grapher worksheet and do not save the changes, using the Graphs | Worksheet | Reload command removes the data changes.
