passing png to excel

Go to solution

I'm trying to figure out how to pass a png file to display in excel. I do have the report generation tool kit. Any examples would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using the IMAQ vis, the picture vis, or are you just creating your own PNG (ie, just the pixel values?)?


While I haven't personally tried this, (I will once I get your response) you could probably utilize the ActiveX controls for excel to literally paste the PNG into a spreadsheet.

You should be able to use the Append Image to to do this.

I read his post three times, and each time, my brain said "I don't have the report generation toolkit."


This VI is exactly what you want if you have the toolkit.
