Gm all.. I am new to labview.. I have data in excel sheets which i have stored in sql by creating a database.. Now i need to extrace data directly from database and display on front panel using labview.. I have gone through the examples given but it shows to use access files(.udl).. is there any way that i can do this without using access files.. If anyone has done this.. please help me.. thanks in advance
Your question should really be in the LabVIEW software discussion forum.
That said, the database connection VI's don't have to use a udl file, you can wire a string constant to them. If you need help with the connection string, I'd suggest you look here, which has loads of examples: https://www.connectionstrings.com/
As mentioned you can use a String constant, but a simple way to get this string is to create a .udl file and then open it in a text editor, the connection string is clear text in it.
