I am reading data using AI Acquire Waveforms. Data is read from multiple channels on a PXI NI 6052E. On the LV front panel the data is displayed in a waveform graph. I want to export the waveform data to an excel spreadsheet using the toolkit VIs such as Excel Easy Graph, and to paste the actual waveform data to spreadsheet cells. I'm having trouble executing this and trying all sorts of different ways. Is there a simple example for working with the waveform data type to do this?
Unfortunately my situation is not as simple as using this VI. For example I need to add waveform information to a report which includes a lot of other workbooks in an xls file. I see that I could open up this file VI and copy out what part of the functions I need, or I could write the info to a temporary workbook, and then copy it to my report, but I am looking for other tools or methods that can get the waveform data. Am I wrong that my only options here would be 1) make my own VI out of the simpler export VI, 2) export the waveform and then copy it into the real report?
There is no VI that will take the image of a LabVIEW chart and put it in excel. Passing the data is doable and there are several examples that show how that is done. The only workarounds that I could think of are the ones you suggested.
