DATA > IMPORT > NEGOPY
PURPOSE Convert text files formatted for the Negopy program into UCINET datasets.
DESCRIPTION Reads the .dat and .nam Negopy files and creates a UCINET dataset.
Input link file: <*.dat>
Name of file, such as TRADE71.DAT, containing ties among actors. Format of the file looks like this:
19 23 156.7 26.2
19 28 162.3 28.9
The first line is a Fortran format statement, required by Negopy but ignored by UCINET. You can just put a blank line if you like. The second line indicates a tie from person 19 to person 23, of strength 156.7 on the first relation, and of strength 26.2 on the second relation.
Input name file: <*.nam>
Name of file, such as TRADE71.NAM, containing labels of actors. Format looks like this:
Number of relations:(Default = 1)
Number of relations contained in the input link file (i.e., the number of columns of data after the two actor id numbers).
Output dataset: (Default = 'Imported')
Name of UCINET dataset to be created.
LOG FILE Data displayed in matrix form.
