You either need to use ActiveX or use the Databse Connectivity Toolkit (extra $).

It certainly does not write to Notepad unless you are doing soemthing pretty fancy in the missing subVI. You are probably just creating a text file that Notepad can open.


In order to write to a database, you can use the Database Connectivity Toolkit or something like LabSQL.

Thank you for replying that but I think I can use TDMS files and write into it and then use that in ms access. I was taught this in labview core 2 class. I am confused
