    save data Reply
    Hallo everyone! I am a PSpice beginner and I have a doubt about the extraction of data: I need to analyse the output of an Orcad PSpice simulation using Matlab, so I have to extract the data from the "black plot" and save them in a suitable format (a .txt is perfecly ok) in order to use them with other programs. How can I do? Thank you for your help, Giulia

    You have following options -

     a) Matlab use direct import of PSpice dat files - http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/21452-pspice-binary-import

    b) You can export data from PSpice. Open the .dat file and Use menu File->Export

    Thanks for your help, but I have a problem.I am using Orcad Capture and I can run my projects, but when I try to open the .dat files they are all black, without traces. I click on View simulation results and I can see the plots, but when I try to open the same .dat files the plot is all black, only with the axis. Have I to save something that I don't know? Or it is a PSpice tool and not an Orcad one?

    Most likely cause is that you have not added any traces after opening the dat files. Right click on the "black plot" and select Trace->Add.Choose the output you want to analyse. Your last Plots are saved in a .prb file. You can reload your last plots from Window->Display Control.Then choose Last Session or LAST DISPLAY.
