Need help setting up Data within Node XL

Dec 1, 2014 at 3:06 PM
Hi everyone!

Does anyone knows if there's a way to automatically arrenge a set of data that looks like this Image into a NodeXL vertex 1 and vertex 2 traditional file?

On the picture you'll find some Twitter data where "vertex1" are the users who originally posted the messages while on the other rows I have all the users that where reached via that particular tweet by the "vertex 1" user. I know I can manually do this but since my data base has around 18000 tweets I was wondering if anyone knows someway to do this without having to manually copy paste and re write the whole data base.

By the way im a new user of nodexl and sorry if my english is not the best, im from Chile, South America.

Thanks for your help!

it looks like you have your data organized as a matrix. Try using the "Import From Open Matrix Workbook..." option.

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

Edges in NodeXL can only have two vertices:
 Vertex1, Vertex2
If there are other people (Vertex3, for example) related to Vertex 1, they need their own row:
 Vertex1, Vertex3
