void    Column_SetType_Ex1()
{
    Worksheet wks;
    wks.Create("Origin", CREATE_VISIBLE);
    wks.Columns(0).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_X); // An X column
    wks.AddCol();
    wks.Columns(2).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_Y); // A Y column
    // Note that sequence is forced by internal check that won't allow X Err without Y column in worksheet
    wks.Columns(1).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_X_ERROR); // An X Err column
    wks.AddCol();
    wks.Columns(3).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_ERROR);   // A Y Err column
    wks.AddCol();
    wks.Columns(4).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_L); // A Label column
    wks.AddCol();
    wks.Columns(5).SetType(OKDATAOBJ_DESIGNATION_Z); // A Z column
    wks.AddCol();
