  2. Select the desired variable names to import by clicking in the check box next to the name.
    • To add a range of variable names, enter the starting and ending variable numbers and click Add Range.
    • To select all the variable names, click Select All.
    • To clear the selected variable names, click Clear.
  3. To save a copy of the data in IDL, use the arrow toggle button to select Yes.

    Note: If you select No, the data is imported into ENVI and deleted from IDL.
