The Origin project file is a data storage container for all of your project-related data. While in the Origin session, you have direct access to all Origin data -- imported data; graphs and layout windows; analysis results; notes concerning results or procedures; even internally saved MS Excel data (.XLS) files. In addition, you can store any 3rd party file type in the Origin project file -- MS Word DOC files, instrument data files, image files, template files, etc. -- allowing you to attach any relevant document to the .OPJ file and retrieve it when the project file is reopened.
