Jira: ORG-27691

In Origin 2024, we introduced a new column format called Binary. It only allow two values (1 and 0).

To set a column as Binary format, you can do it with the column properties dialog, or set from LabTalk script like wks.col1.format = 9.

By default,

  • If you enter numeric data, "0" will still display as 0, and "1" still 1. Any values other then 0 and 1 will display as missing(“--”).

  • If you enter text, “yes” and “true” will display as 1, “no” and “false” display as 0. Any other texts will display as missing.
