This tool selects, reorders and renames table columns. It can also be used to convert text files into tables.
Column list: Selects columns to be printed. You can use comma separated lists of column numbers (like 3,1,5), and ranges of column numbers (like 9-14).
New column names: Add new header row for the selected columns. Use comma separated lists of column names (like source,date,name). By default the first imported row is used as a header row.
Column separator: Chipster uses tabulator as a column separator.
If you wish to convert a text file into a Chipster table, you can change other column separators such as space, semicolon (;), colon (:), comma (,) and pipe (|) to tabulator.
First row to read: Skip the first few lines of the input file. Note that in table files, the header row is considered as the first row.
Does the first column of the input file have a title: Choose No if the first column does not have a title (this is typical for tables produced by the R-based tools in Chipster).
Note that you must in all cases explicitly define the number of the columns that will be selected to the result table.
Output is a table file.
