Excel Board

 
File attached....
 
Have gone thru FAQs and examples. (And also 4 parts of 'Creating a Report in Microsoft Excel Using the LabVIEW Report Generation Toolkit'. Unfortunately this document is not clear enough for me.)

Have task of modifying rows of the same excel sheet, number of times without touching data  already present (numbers and strings)

I have an excel file. (attached)
A test will be run N number of times.  (n and N<=17)
SubTask 1 --> Each time it runs, string data needs to be placed in 'n'th row. (...there are going to be notes in Row 18 and row 19)
SubTask 2  --> Each time it runs, a 1D array data also will be placed in the same row (but in different cells)
SubTask 3 --> The number 'n' of the row (where to place the current iteration's data) needs to be determined on fly (by looking at "n-1"st non blank row)
The same file needs to be used.
How can above be achieved ?
 
thanks

I'm sorry sandeep but you will have to post this question in the Labview or appropriate forum. This board shall only be used to link to a discussion thread or to post VI's that already do a specific task.

Thank you.

Here is a very handy piece of advice for anyone who is unsure about how to do something in Excel with ActiveX.

Here are another few useful pieces of advice on Excel and ActiveX.

Points of note: Ensuring that you close all references in the reverse order of opening them

"Note that any function which returns a reference opens a new reference (Ranges need to be closed too)" - seems obvious, but I missed it until I read this.

Thanks to Steven and Shane for the info.
