Saving values for a specific time period

In our project we measure temperature,torque,revolution and emissions of an internal combustion engine.I want to save measured values to an excel file for a specific time period without stopping screen values  while seeing  the new  measured valus on screen.

 

I mean the values are running on screen in indicator box etc. and I push a button and the values are going to be saved to an excel file for 10 seconds for example.Can this be possible?How can I do this?

 

Thank you for your interest.

You can think of a separate loop for logging with an option of pause/resume.
Now main loop should send command when to start logging and when to pause and resume.

Why specifically you want to write to excel, probably you can write the data to a text file (CSV format) and that file later can be opened in excel very easily.

However if the requirement is stringent and using excel is the only option; writing to excel need not specifically require Report generation toolkit to be installed, but you can use activeX based functions (you can search to find more example around this) to write/read to/from excel file.
