    4  #!Rall111 Creating a Header File #!N #!EC #!N #!N The General 
    5 Array Importer uses a "header file" to describe the structure and 
    6 location of data to be imported. This file consists of  #!F-adobe-times-medium-i-normal--18*   
    7 keyword #!EF statements that identify important characteristics of that data (including 
    8 grid structure, format, and data type, along with the path name 
    9 of the file containing the data). #!N #!N A header file 
   10 can be created with a text editor or, more easily, with 
   11 the Data Prompter, which prompts for the necessary information. (See  #!Ltimpdat,dxall37 h Importing Data  #!EL  
   12 for an example that uses the Data Prompter and  #!Lprompt,dxall157 h Data Prompter  #!EL  for 
   13 a detailed description of how to use it.) The Data Prompter 
   14 also checks for incorrect syntax, such as conflicting keywords (see  #!Lsydfgi,dxall139 h Header File Syntax: Keyword Statements  #!EL  
   15 ). #!N #!N Once a header file has been created, the 
   16 data it describes can be imported into Data Explorer by the 
   17 Import module. To identify a header file to Data Explorer through 
   18 the Import dialog box: #!N #!I0 #!N  #!F-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--18*   #!N #!N #!I30 
   19 #!N 1. Enter the path name of the header file in 
   20 the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   name #!EF parameter field. #!N #!I30 #!N 2. Enter 
   21 "general" in the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   format #!EF parameter field. (If the file 
   22 has the extension "  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   . #!EF general," it is not 
   23 necessary to specify the format to Import. Header files created with 
   24 the Data Prompter are automatically given this extension.) #!N #!I0 #!N
