Select the appropriate file, in this case garnet.raw and press
the "Open" button.
At this stage, different things can happen.
If the file is not correctly formatted,
a dialog will offer
to convert the file to the correct format.
Also, in some cases, the data file specifies the name of the instrument
parameter file. If so, that name will be loaded into the "Instrument
Parameter file" box. If not, as in this case, the file must be selected
by pressing the lower "Select File" button which creates a
dialog box to select an instrument parameter file, similar
to the one above.
The appropriate instrument parameter file is then located and selected.
Note that since only one bank of data is present in the file,
bank 1 is selected automatically however one must know something
about the instrument parameter file to know that bank 1 is the
Finally one must enter either the minimum d-space or
maximum two-theta to be used from the data (note that
this value can be changed later if need be from EXPEDT). A
good wat to do this is to use
to look at the data. This is done
by pressing the "Run RAWPLOT" button at the
lower right (example).
The GSAS tutorial in the manual suggests using 159 for this refinement.
When all input is complete, press Add to run program EXPTOOL and read the
data into the .EXP file.
The results from the EXPTOOL are shown in a separate box, so
that errors can be noted. After OK is pressed, the histogram
is now listed on the Histogram pane (see below).
