ActiveX and Labview 5.01

Could somebody help me. I need urgently some information about where I can
get a documentation regarding ActiveX classes, parameters, invokes and
property nodes.

How do I know which parametrs and classes to use in order to generate an
array in Excel format, or something similar. (Excelfile not Spreadsheet !)

I`m using Labview 5.01 under Windows 95.

(I`ve seen the example "write table to xl.vi" but I havent really
understood)

Thanks
Michael

The ActiveX components are part of the application that creates
them, not a part of labview. So information on ActiveX from Excel
will have to be gained from Microsoft. Or some kind soul here.
I dont know or I would tell you.

An Excel file IS a spreadsheet, as far as I understand it.

This
is probably what you want to use.

Wow Kevin, I think you've hit on a new level of unhelpfulness.

Michael,

For info on ActiveX, you could start at:
http://www.ni.com/support/trouble/labview/program/activex/

There are several links to go from there, including Microsoft's
ActiveX page:

http://www.microsoft.com/com/activex.asp

By the way, a LabVIEW spreadsheet file is still like a text file, with
information basically in text format. Excel saves all sorts of
formatting info which basically makes the file unreadable in text
form.

Hope this helps,

Keith Barker
