Thanks for your reply. I have added the missing field you sugegsted, but FT
still gives the same error-message.
Maybe I was also unclear what I want to do in the first place. The data we
have is already preprocessed ( filtered, segmented etc.) with the Analyzer.
Also, we have averaged the ERP's for each subject and each experimental
condition over all the trials. I would like to import these averaged ERP's
into FT and do some statisitics on the data. The problem is that I do not know
how to get required data-structure to use the FT-functions.
