i find the resources very useful. But i can't seem to run the programme. I was prompted to open the sub vi. i did as told but still encounter problem when running. i'm interested at running the first example.
i'm using LabVIEW 8.0. when i press the run button, an error list promts up. It says:
subVI 'excel writing string.vi" subVI is not executable.
my format is similar to example 1. attached is my VI. the fields that is accompanied with the square LEDs needs to be filled in. Meaning for example, when at 1min, a few LED will light up. when the LED lights up, a person needs to fill in the box.
The VI is programmed to run beyond 6 mins. After 6 minutes, all fields will be filled in by someone. The data recorded needs to be exported and save at excel.
That's the problem i'm facing right now. cos for now, i can only save it at the initial run of the VI. Not at the end.
I hope u get a better understanding of my situation.
Troy's suggestion is a good one. There are a couple examples on writing to Excel in the LabVIEW Example Finder that would be useful to look at as well. Search "Excel" and try the "Write Table to XL.vi". There are also some good examples displaying how to use the Event structure. Check out the "Acquire-Analyze-Present.vi" example available by searching "event" and selecting "event-driven" in the keyword field.
i am still confused on writing to Excel. I want to write in LabVIEW and send to excel. Must i inlcude all the drives before i could write to excel?

I know you posted this message long time ago but i'm trying to do something similar to what you did but not sure how... During the experiment I want to be able to capture data at that point in time by allowing the user to click a button to store the data. if i've understood it correctly, i think you've used a 'numeric control' for this. could you please expand on how you achieved this? say at setting 1, once im happy with the experimental values i want to click a button and data to be either stored in a table in the front panel or exported to anotehr file.
also, i have some manual inputs which are manupilated (eg pressure and temperature inputs are used to calculate the density). but while the program is running, when i change the value at the input the output (i.e. density) does not update. any ideas on how i can overcome this?
thanks in advance
