Reading text from a spreadsheet file



How can I read text from a spreadsheet, when my vi already has a spreadsheet being read for integers? I tried to use the index array to take a column from the file which contains text, and create an indicator to show the text from that column on the front panel. But because I already have integer indicators coming from the index array, it created with another integer indicator instead of string which does not show any of the text.

Try doing the opposite. Read the spreadsheet as a string, then convert to int where you need to. Or, read the spreadsheet twice.
