new data set window/dialog question


this window has a button labeled "add file". if it's enabled, and i click on it, i can select another file, but after selecting the 2nd file, i get an error message about the files not being compatible or something like that. i'm just walking through the software, trying to get a feel for what i can and can't do. i'm not sure what this button is suppose to be able to allow one to do. any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

      hi henry,

      i didn't quite get the name of the dialog box right - i should have typed "add new dataset" as the dialog box name. i am referring to the add files button at the end of the file(s) field.

      i guess i don't understand what the purpose of the button is for. i get that it allows you to select another file, but what is the purpose of selecting another file

      i was not trying to merge a dataset. plus, i thought the data - combine - merge option handled that.
