Re: opening an .ss file

In case it's not clear, you still need to have the relevant
data objects at the proper location on your machine for the
spreadsheet files to work.  If the data file does not exist
at the proper path, you will receive "The source could not
be converted to VisAD data" error message.

If you have the data file, but at a different absolute path,
you can edit the spreadsheet file with a text editor and
change the paths to match yours, and it should work.
