I have a question concerning the use of excel templates. Though there are a number of forum posts dedicated to the topic, I don't quite see how to fit it all together.
Currently I have a DAQ with 40 output channels, I am trying to write those results to a pre-formatted excel.
My current VI has all the capabilities I wish (See attached Current.vi) except the ability to put the data in a pre formatted excel.
The write to measurement VI that I am using is a native part of labview, it seems as though I need to use the Report Generation Toolkit (which I have), though I am not quite sure how to create the template using LV. I continue to get errors "this is not a labview generated excel".
I have also attached my current output (See attached DAQ_OUTPUT.xls) I would like the data to instead look like the slightly formated finished product (Attached DAQ_Output_ideal_final.xls).
Specifically, I would like to create a template [this template would be exactly (Attached DAQ_Output_ideal_final.xls) minus the data], then use the for loop within my current VI to determine the target row of insertion. I would like to use the iteration count (i).
Apologies, as I am sure this question has been answered I simply can't make heads or tails of the report generation toolkit; I imagine that since my desired result is relatively simple, there could be a work around using only the write to measurement
VI Wrong term.
Do not use a Template. Generate the Excel Worksheet "on the fly" using the Report Generation Toolkit tools. I showed how do to this a while ago -- look for the post called Revised "Generate Excel Report" Example, which includes the revised Demo.
That's the one. I think it is self-explanatory -- try it out, experiment with adding stuff, see if it will suit your needs.
