Hello. I am currently running into a report issue. My overall goal is to have a graph exported to a specified excel file.
I am running TestStand with LabVIEW Vi's. In one vi I am reading in a graph and storing it into a Local Variable in Teststand using a "LabVIEWAnalogWaveform (Container)" type. In the module I specify the variable to be logged into the final report. I then specify in report options (under configure>report options) to have the report file logged into an exel file. The data is succesfully written to the excel file, however it saves the data as an array of numbers, not as a graph. I need a graph, due to the fact that I am testing over 1601 points and am using the graph to analyze the data, not to read thousands of data points. Is there a way to publish the graph to excel?
Attached are pictures of what I have(1) and what i am trying to obtain (using my ultra photoshop skills-2). Also, I have 8 separate graphs I need to be published, which is why you see more than one in picture 2.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm sorry to hear your data is not displaying correctly, there are a couple of things we will need to consider to do this properly. First, are you trying to build the graph in TestStand and then add it to the report or are you wanting to pull a graph from LabVIEW and place it into the report?
From the TestStand Reference Manual: "XML reports might unexpectedly display a table of measurement datainstead of a graph under either of the following conditions:
The KnowledgeBase Graphs in XML TestStand Report Do Not Show in External Viewer goes into mroe detail on this
2. If you are trying to pull a graph that you have displayed in LabVIEW please refer to the Developer Zone Article How to Insert a LabVIEW Control Image into a TestStand Report to do this.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
