read files

I am automating a test that has multiple test settings. I would like to use a look-up table to assign settings to several clusters, wait a period of time, apply a new group of settings, etc. I've been toying with the Read Lines From File.vi, but can't get the hang of it at all. The file needs to be something easily edited, as the settings will change periodically. Any thoughts and all advice appreciated.Paul

Paul,

Take a look at configuration file vi's. The all examples are available
in LabVIEW. You'll have key-based text file like traditional structured
..ini files looks like.

Good luck,
