Changing delimiter in DAQmx Configure Logging VI

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi,

 

I am currently using the DAQmx Configure Logging VI to log data into a tdms file, but I need to change the delimiter to a period (I believe default is \t if I'm not mistaken). I don't know if that's even possible with this VI, but if it is, I'm having issues figuring out how. I know there is a Write Delimited Spreadsheet VI where it's easy to change the delimiter but if it's possible in the configure logging VI I'd rather do that.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

TDMS is a binary format.  There is no delimiter.  There is an Excel plugin that should have installed with LabVIEW to allow you to open TDMS files in Excel and therefore read the data.

OK that's what I originally thought. I am generating some data to send to somebody else that will process it in Python, but he was having issues getting it to work and he had asked me to change the delimiter, which I thought didn't make sense.

 

I'll let him know that the delimiter isn't the issue (as it doesn't exist). Thanks!

A quick Google search gave me this: npTDMS.  Your somebody else might want to check out that library.
