*   Working in a Chromatogram Processor Window
In the Chromatogram Processor window, you can copy chromatograms with extracted spectra for importing into reports, spreadsheets, or other Windows programs. MSn data is displayed in tree structures so that you can view the dependencies. Using text boxes, you can annotate chromatographic scans or components. This module does not include target analysis, structures, or automatic quantitation of ions.
v
To make the chromatogram files editable
1.
The Mass Frontier software comes with GC/MS and Xcalibur MSn demonstration files, located in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\HighChem\Mass Frontier 7.0\Chromatograms directory.
2.
Right-click the files and choose Properties from the shortcut menu.
3.
Clear the Read-only check box in the Properties dialog box and click OK.
Note  You cannot open GC/LC/MS files from a CD-ROM. If you have files on a CD-ROM, copy these files to the hard drive and disable the read-only file attribute to make them accessible for importing.
v
To open a Chromatogram Processor window
1.
Click the Chromatogram Processor button, , in the Mass Frontier toolbar.
–or–
Choose File > Open > GC/LC/MS from the Mass Frontier main menu.
–or–
Double-click a HighChem chromatogram (.hcc) in Windows Explorer.
The Open Chromatogram dialog box opens.
2.
The Chromatogram Processor window opens. See Chromatogram Processor window.
v
To export scans or components to a Database Manager window
1.
2.
Click the Add Selected Scans/Components to Database Manager button, .
Because copying components can take several minutes, use this method to monitor the processing and, if needed, interrupt the operation.
The Export Chromatographic and Spectral Data dialog box opens.
3.
4.
Click Continue.
The Select Target dialog box opens.
5.
Select the Database Manager window for the exported data, and then click Select.
–or–
Click New Database Manager.
The export process begins.

v
To copy data to a Database Manager window
1.
2.
Right-click and choose Copy > Copy option from the shortcut menu.
You can copy a selection, chromatogram, MS spectrum, or an MS tree.
3.
In a Database Manager window, right-click and choose Paste > option from the shortcut menu.
For more information about exporting and importing chromatograms, see Exporting Scans, Components, and Reduced Chromatograms.
v
To copy components to a Spectra Classifier window
1.
2.
Click the Add Selected Scans or Components to Spectra Classifier button, .
The Spectra Classifier window opens, and the selected components are displayed in the Available Groups of Spectra list.
