Origin Ver. and Service Release (Select Help-->About Origin):
Operating System:

I'm using an old version of the Origin.
I have a question regarding loading over 500 XY curves (different x and y values) to one plot.
I'm doing that because I need to get the curves to one plot and then to have averaged curve of them through the Average Multiple Curves.
As a practice, I imported 100 books on screen and then run the script:

repeat 1 {win -t P;} //create new empty graph
doc -e W //loop all workbooks in the OPJ
wks.col$(2).type=4; // make column2 from y to x
plotxy iy:=(18) plot:=200 ogl:=[Graph1]1!; //create one plot having 100 curves.

It was good without any problem.

Then I tried to import 511 files. It was no problem for loading the files to the screen as 511 books. But it gave error message after running the script as above. It seems that the system only could have 128 curves in one plot.
May I have your help for solving the issue? Perhaps a loop that I can have a few plots with each of them having 128 curves.


Maximum number of data sets in a legend is 129. The remaining data are not included in the legend.

Can you import all your files into one worksheet that each file is imported as an X and Y column?

Then you can select all the columns and run Average Multiple Curves. Basically if you just want to average curves, you don't have to plot them out.

Thank you.
