Configuring COM port in LabVIEW

Highlighted
I have digital scales, with usual RS-232 interface. It is connected to one
of my com ports in the PC. How do I configure LabVIEW to read data from it?
I can seem to define a virtual channel since the only input I get is my
PCI-6024E card.

Thankful for any help recieved, Victor

Doesn't standard "Serial Port Read" do the trick ? Functions
toolbox-->Serial.
Another way would be to access the port by "In port"
(Functions-->Advanced-->Memory). You simply give the address of the
port there and it works.
