Abstract
Large amounts of data gathered during several projects requiring considerable amounts of repetitive computation and file organization are best represented logically by a tree or hierarchical structure. Much existing table-oriented software provides the computational, maintenance, and graphic capabilities, but lacks an inherently hierarchical data structure. The solution was to impose a dynamic hierarchical data structure onto a set of tables and graphs generated by a commercial decision-support software package. A general purpose procedure was written to produce a multileveled tree structure of subdirectories, where the names of the subdirectories describe the source of the data. The heart of this system is the use of table entries as nodes of a tree that point to the next level of branching until the actual data are finally reached.
