Analyse Nodes Frequency

Source Data

This function analyses the text values of each node and produces a frequency report that looks globally across the whole tree structure.

Key Steps

To analyse the frequency of lobe values in source Delimited Path data, follow the steps below.

Step #

Step Detail


Select the column or row that contains the outline structure source data that you want to analyse.

NOTE: this function is only applicable to Delimited Path source data.


Click on the “Analyse Node Frequency” button in the TreeWiz Ribbon Menu in the Tools section


Edit the parameters in the Parameters Form that is activated. Because this function is only applicable to Delimited Path source data, the function input parameters are the same. You are not creating any outline structures, so the Excel Parameters aren’t required.


Click on “OK’ to perform the function or “Cancel” to exit


The function will perform, and a new worksheet will be created that contains the output results (see screenshot)


Click on “Cancel” or the form close icon to close the form.

The Analyse Nodes Frequency creates a report worksheet containing the results of the analysis.

The columns for this report are:

  1. Node value – the literal string for each lobe of the input paths
  2. Node Freq – the global count for each instance of the node literal string value

Refer to the figure below for an example of the report output.
