Working with Well Markers and Tops

Use the Well Markers Table (a classification sheet of well markers) to view and edit the markers and tops in a spreadsheet format. See Defining Well Markers, Managing Well Components and Selecting Default Well Components for more details.

The Well Markers Table can be exported as a .csv or .txt file. Insight will export all the markers shown in the table.

Note: You can only edit the markers if you are the owner of the active marker set for a specific well. If you are not the owner, you must first take ownership of the active set (see Taking Ownership of Wells), create your own set (see Add a new Marker Table), or choose another marker set to be active (see Import a Marker File).
