Navigating and Editing a Data File

The computer screen can only display a small amount of a large data file. Navigating through a large amount of data can be awkward. Fortunately, the tool bar has helpful features for navigating and editing large data files.

Buttons from the tool bar for navigating and editing a data file

From left to right:

Insert or clear a case by right clicking on the case for a row at the far left.

Let's say we need to insert or delete a case or a variable. Right-clicking on the case variable for a specific row will raise a pop-up menu with the option to insert or delete a case at that position. A similar feature is available for the columns.
