Data Analysis Tool (DAT) for PVA-1500/1000/600+

The Data Analysis Tool (DAT) is an Excel macro that is useful for analyzing large PVA data sets, and for generating professional reports of your measurement results. For more info about the DAT go here...

Note: The DAT requires MS Excel and Windows 10 to be in excellent working order. If you get run-time errors, please update Windows, run the 'repair' function for MS Office, and install/repair vc_redist.x64.exe (see link above). DAT users running PVA software version 4.4 or later MUST use DAT version 3.6.1 or later in order to import the newly formatted output from the PVA software.

Note: The PV Analyzer application and the Data Analysis Tool work best with Microsoft Windows v.1909 or above with all available updates installed, and the 2015-2019 Visual C++ Redistributable x86 and x64 updates from Microsoft. If you are seeing issues running the software, run these updates:

vc_redist.x86.exe - helps PVA application run smoothly
vc_redist.x64.exe - for Excel/PVA_DAT
