    60 SasView will read ASCII ('text') files in the NIST 2D format (with the extensions .ASC or .DAT) or files in the NeXus NXcanSAS (HDF5) format (with the extension .H5). File extensions are not case-sensitive. Both of these formats are written by the `Mantid Framework <http://www.mantidproject.org/>`_. 
     65SasView will read ASCII ('text') files in the NIST 2D format (with the extension .DAT) or files in the NeXus NXcanSAS (HDF5) format (with the extension .H5 or .NXS). File extensions are not case-sensitive. Both of these formats are written by the `Mantid Framework <http://www.mantidproject.org/>`_.

    6267Most of the header lines in the NIST 2D format can actually be removed except the last line, and only the first three columns (*Qx, Qy,* and *I(Qx,Qy)*) are actually required.

     74    SasView does not read the standard NeXus format, only the NXcanSAS subset.  
    6375 
    6476The SasView :ref:`File_Converter_Tool` available in SasView 4.1 onwards can be used to convert data sets in the 2D BSL/OTOKO format into the NeXus NXcanSAS (HDF5) format.
