Thanks for your answer.
Not sure how to explain myself at best so I’ll give you a simplified example:
I acquire images from plate n.1 with my first 96 samples this week and I analyze data with my pipeline. This gives me my Default.OUT file which I export to a Database using SQLite and I also ask to generate a properties file for Analyst.
Next week a plate n.2 will be ready with the next 96 samples and I will do exactly the same thing and so on each week.
So after a few weeks I have let’s say 10 folders each one with its own Default.OUT and database and properties file. Now if I want to run an analysis on ALL my samples like this, I have to analyze 96 by 96 and instead what I’d like to do is to analyze all 960 in one shot…
So I THINK by best answer to your question is: I want to MergeOutputFiles, and on the resulting merged output I use the ExportToDatabase to generate one big database and the associated properties file which now contains data from all plates…but if you have a better suggestion I’m all ears!
Now the problem is that on Mac I open the MergeOutputFiles Data Tool, I get to the window when CP asks me to choose a name and location for the resulting file but when I click on Add to add all my DefaultOUT files NOTHING happens…it’s like clicking a dead button. I read on this forum that others had the same issue but apparently someone made it using a PC…so that’s what I did and I DO get to choose my Default.OUT files to merge but when I click on Merge (or execute…can’t remember) I get an error message…which I can try to reproduce and copy/paste if it may help but ideally I’d like to use my Mac to do this 'cause it can process data faster than the PC we have…
I have the most updated versions of both CP and CPA
