I am reading a .CSV file of a waveform which consists of two columns, one column is time & the other is voltage. I then convert this data into a .ISF file format and write it to the hard disk on my PC.
Trouble is, when I open the .ISF file with NOTEPAD.EXE and copy the data then paste it into a string control which sends the string to a Sony/Tek AWG2005 Arb via the GPIB Write vi .. voila! perfect file (8950 bytes), but when I just wire the converted data into a GPIB Write vi I get only 984 bytes. I am using the Write Characters To File vi to make the .ISF file.
Where is all the extra data coming from? And why don't I get it when I am writing it to the file ?
I'm not very good with file I/O, so I really ap preciate any help!
Thanks Mike Forkner
