The Compile Property Data command is found on the Chemicals chapter's Commands menu.
The command will activate the Compile Property Values dialog that can be used to compile all values for a selected physical property. This range of these compiled values is useful for checking a new datum entry or establishing the limits of a physical property design constraint.
Optionally you can set limits on the values to compile. For example, if you wished to compile only those values near 500K, you might enter a constraint of 500 ± 25 K. The dialog would compile all chemicals whose critical temperature was between 475K and 525K.
Similarly you can set limits on the state variables of temperature and pressure dependent properties. For example, if you wished to compile all vapor pressure values near 25°C, you might enter a constraint of 25 ± 5 °C.
Click the left mouse button on one of the Compiled Property Values valued rows. The dialog will indicate the location of that value in the histogram with a blue diamond within the graph's axis.
