Search two different elements from excel

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi all,

 

I have an excel file and its consists of Freq, DOA, Voltage-1, 2, 3 & 4.

Freq & DOA are the inputs to find out the voltages. But here one frequency corresponding to set of DOA Values. That means Both the values (Freq & DOA) are repeating in the excel.

For more clarity please find the enclosed excel sheet.

If it is not repeating means we can easily search but here the value are repeating and i am not able to match the both row indexs.

Please provide the solution for this case.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Nagaraju

Please show us what you've tried. Are you using the Report Generation Toolkit or plain ActiveX?

Your data consist of 6 columns arranged as one Header row and multiple "Data" rows, where all of the data are numbers (integers, in fact).

 

You can easily read everything from Row 2 on into a 2D Array.  To simplify the sorting and searching you'd need to do, I would advocate created a Cluster of 6 I32s (or Dbls), called Freq, DOA, Chan 1, Chan 2, Chan 3, and Chan 4, then (in a For Loop), make it a TypeDef ("My Data") and change the 2D array of I32s into a 1D Array of My Data.

 

Now your problem simplifies easily -- given a pair of Freq and DOA, locate the My Data record that matches and return the four Chan X values.

 

The solution to the first part (reading the Worksheet) has been covered numerous times, and there are Examples, I believe, in LabVIEW.  If you get stuck, post your code (as VIs, please) and we'll help.

Dear sir,

 

I followed your suggested approach. But I didn't understand “change the 2D array of I32s into a 1D Array of My Data”.

Here I am attaching the VI what I tired.

Kindly help for solution.

 

Thanks,

Dear ben64,

 

I am using Report Generation Toolkit.

Please find the enclosed VI which I tried initially and it is searching upto first match after that stopping.

 

Thanks,

HI Nagaraju,

 

The way Ben told is also a good idea to implement. You can also try sequential searching which means first search the frequency and use that index ass offset and search for the DOA. It should help you out.

I guess you're talking about Bob's idea.

You need to iterate throught the 2D array to match both values.
