Insert DAT


The Insert DAT allows you to insert a row or column into an existing table.

You can add strings that will be put in the new cells, space separated. If you want a cell to include spaces, in the Contents parameter put the cell contents in quotes: cell1 'cell 2' cell3. Or a list in the parameter expression: ['cell1', 'cell 2']

If the input DAT is not a table, it will be converted to a table.
