Hi Deon,
I believe that you need to have an empty line or two at the bottom of the file, which Excel may not like to do. I have used ATOM (https://atom.io/) to save changes back to an SPD file in the past. I believe you also have to clearly specify the number of points you are adding coordinates for in  the $SPD_NUMBER_OF_DATA line.

Subject: EXT: [PROBEUSERS] how can you create custom *.spd Stage Map file for PC-SEM, with Excel

Hi All,

I'm trying to create and upload a Stage Map file (.spd) into the JEOL PC-SEM software (JXA-8230; Working with Win-XP version), by using Excel to modify an existing .spd file.

When I import the existing .spd into Excel, I have to specify "space delimited" to get the values separated in columns. 

However, I'm not having success in finding a format to export the resulting modified file back into .spd. I've tried exporting various txt formats but nothing loads back into the PC-SEM software...

Does anyone know how to create and import spd files from Excel into PC-SEM Stage Map?

Thanks,
Deon.
