Hello! 

 

I am trying to read a .csv file in Labview2010. I have browsed the path and file but I get an Error 7: file not found. Has someone got any idea why and how to solve it?

 

Thanks in advanced!

Impossible to tell from a blurry picture. Did you browse for path using the path constant (right-click...browse for path)?

 

What is your OS language?

Hello altenbach,

 

Thank you for your quick answer. Yes, I browsed as you said.

Have you tried opening your file with a simple Text editor, such as Notepad?  I could imagine that if the file was wildly "wrong" (say, binary data), LabVIEW might get "confused" ...

 

How large is the file?  If it is not too large, attach it and offer a cookie to the first person who can open it ...

I doubt "file not found" should depend on the file contents.

 

  • What kind of path is this?
  • Is the folder on the local disk or some network location? (What is "RT Mirrored"?)
  • Does the filename contain any unusual characters (unicode, etc.)?
  • Is the containing folder accessible to LabVIEW?
  • Does it work better if you run LabVIEW as administrator? (right-click..run as administrator)

Thank you for your answers. Finally I solved it: the file was not accesible because the .vi was located in the PXI and the CSV file in the host PC. Now it sounds a foolish mistake but it took my mind anyway! Still too much to learn in Labview...
