Description

This tool is used to subtract one curve from another. When the two datasets' coordinates differ, the two curves will be interpolated or extrapolated with linear interpolation before subtraction occurs.

Examples

  1. Import Gaussian.dat on \Samples\Curve Fitting folder.
  2. Highlight column B and select Plot: Line: Line to plot a curve.
  3. Click Analysis: Data Manipulation: Subtract Reference Data to open Subtract Reference Data dialog.
  4. Select column C for Reference Data branch. And then click the OK button.

Then you can see a new curve is created.
