Custom file name when saving

When my program creates a report, I want to save it as a serial number defined in the report.  I want to use the MS Office Report Express VI to do this but unfortunately it only allows you to save the file name as a time/date and/or incremental number.

You can pass in the file name that you want to save the data to.  Why not build up your own file path?  The Build Path primitive will be helpful here.

Unfortunately you cannot input a path to the MS office express VI... 😞 Otherwise I would use the build path function.

Check again.  There should be a path input (at least it is there on my machine).
