Replace the Open New Worksheet function (so it doesn't make a new worksheet when you open the Workbook) then you need to find the next row to write in (unless you want to replace data). I've written a VI that does this and replaced the Row constant with the next row from the last time the Workbook was saved.

thanks a lot Jim, you are the best ^^

Hi Jim, Sorry to bother you again, I just wonder how do you connect the get next xl row.vi to the cell value? I try to use the function you posted, but it's now working, I actually need to get next xl column instead or row, since I need the output value to excel set to next column everytime I finished recording and save the excel and run it again.

I'm not sure I understand what's not working, but you can rewire the output from the attached VI and it will give you the next column number. I've modified it to return the next column as well as row.

Oops. I don't know when it happened, but there was a class conflict. I had the terminal wired incorrectly, but that doesn't tell me how the type changed. Anyway, here's a corrected VI.
You may also need to modify the wiring a bit to get the
depending on what you're trying to do. Regardless, you can't set the column tunnel to Use Defaults if Empty because you'll get a zero every time after the first loop. Use a Shift Register to carry it back around.

Yeap, thanks, it's working now, but the system seems a bit wierd, I attached the picture show how exactly what I need when run and stop then run again this vi which show the result on excel

You need to understand how the Shift Register works with the Case Structure. The True case is where you put the initial Row,Column pair. You want the row to always start at 1 and the column to start with whichever is next. The false case is where you'll increment the cell position. You want the row to increment and the column to stay the same. As Nike says: "Just do it."
