Creating Excel Test Report

Hi All,


I have managed to make a few nice self test programs using labview now, and feel l'm starting to get into the swing of it! One thing thats letting my programs down is the lack of data analaysis at the end. I would like my programs to automatically generate test reports in Excel. Up to now ive only managed this very simply using .txt files etc.


I know there is an example of an excel test report in example finder, but there is mention of using place holders in excel which i have never come across before.


any help/ advice would be appreciated

Hi for Report generation there is specific toolkit: LabVIEW Report Generation Toolkit for Microsoft Office:
-You can start here on how to use the toolkit: and
-In Excel, the easiest way to define placeholders is to use named ranges to define the place where data has to be inserted.

Several years ago, I submitted (in response to a Question on the Forum) a revised Example for generating an Excel Report using the Report Generation Toolkit.  If you search in the Forums for Revised " (that is, type the word "Revised" and then a single Quotation mark), it should pop up this example.  If you have the RGT, creating Excel Reports in LabVIEW is fairly straight-forward.

Here is the gist of it. 



Heads up! NI has moved LabVIEW to a mandatory SaaS subscription policy, along with a big price increase. Make your voice heard.
