       DTIF - Digital Table Interchange Format

       DTIF(TM) is the CDA(TM) interchange, storage, and application file for‐
       mat for tabular data such as spreadsheets,  database  information,  and
       multi-dimensional tables. DTIF tables contain rows and columns of cells
       in which the application stores data as absolute values	and  formulas.
       Application- and user-specified presentation attributes (such as fonts,
       borders, and bolding) determine formatting when displaying or  printing
       a sequence of one or more DTIF tables.

       DTIF  files  can	 be  dynamically  linked  to  and  updated from within
       DDIF(TM) compound documents via ACA(TM)	LiveLinks(TM).	DTIF-supported
       file formats can also be converted to CDA output documents for the pur‐
       pose of including tabular data in the form of text  within  reports  or
       other  documents.   Formulas  and  presentation attributes such as cell
       borders, headers, grid lines, and font types will be lost, however. For
       more information on CDA table-to-document file conversions and process‐
       ing options, refer to the dtifddif manpage.

       DTIF files can be displayed  and	 printed  on  a	 variety  of  devices,
       including  text-only  terminals or PCs (character-cell) and imaging and
       WYSIWYG terminals (windows workstations and PCs).

       DOTS (Data Object  Transport  Syntax)  and  network  services  such  as
       DECwindows  Motif  mail,	 DECnet(TM),  the  File Transfer Protocol, DEC
       MAILworks(TM), PATHWORKS(TM), and ACA  LiveLinks	 support  transfer  of
       DTIF   files   among  key  NAS(TM)  platforms:  VMS(TM)	DECwindows(TM)
       Motif(R), DEC(TM) OSF/1(R),  MS-DOS(R)  Microsoft(R)  Windows(TM),  and
       OS/2(TM). For more information, refer to manpages for DOTS and the dtoc
       and ctod commands.

       DEC CDA Run-Time Services provides the facilities for CDA  applications
       to create, store, interchange, and display CDA-supported compound docu‐
       ment and tabular file formats. For more	information  on	 CDA  enabling
       technologies  and  the DEC CDA Run-Time Services, refer to the CDA man‐
