This code demonstrates how to create multiple (measurement) files with an incrementing suffix in the file name.
It is sometimes necessary to split a large file into multiple files with an incrementing suffix in the file name. LabVIEW 2015 (or compatible) provides a built in VI called "Create File with Incrementing Suffix" which can be used for this purpose. If you use LabVIEW 2014 or previous, you have to implement this functionality by yourself. This example shows a way to create a file with an incrementing suffix if you can't take advantage of LabVIEW 2015 (or compatible). It is not the same implementation like the sipped "Create File with Incrementing Suffix" VI.
LabVIEW Base Development System 2012 (or compatible)
If running in a Real-Time context, you will need the LabVIEW Real-Time Module 2012 (or compatible)
No hardware is necessary to use this example VI
Steps to Implement or Execute Code
Download and open the attached VI
Set the Folder Path and change the File Name and File Extension if needed.
Run the program
