Blank Component Wizard

Blank Component Wizard

Blank Component Wizard

I'm trying to learn how to use components in MathCAD 7 to import and export data, but I seem to be stuck on step one.  When I select Import > Component the Component Wizard pops up but it's blank.  There's just a dialog box labeled Component Wizard that contains a field with the label "Select a component to insert:" but with nothing in the field to select.  

Step two in every help article on components is "select <x> from the list," but there's no list.  Do I have to activate something to make this feature usable?  What have I missed?

RE: Blank Component Wizard

Me thinks you need Mathcad Pro for that, is that what you got?

No, just Mathcad 7 Standard.  Maybe that's the problem.

RE: Blank Component Wizard

Well, if it's that important to you I could, of course, may be reinstall Mathcad 7 Standard again and find out. I still have the CD somewhere in my archives.

RE: Blank Component Wizard

And I was wrong. Even in the Standard edition you have Axum, File Read or Write, Input Table and Output Table.
