I have an application which is almost complete. The only issue left to deal with is more of an asthetic one than anything. Currently, I am using ActiveX to open an excel object on the front panel and populate it with the contents of a previously generated template. Then I add the contents of two arrays (elements selected from two periodic tables) and I input some additional numeric values. Here's the issue. Currently, I have 30 rows in the template; therefore there are 30 rows by default dispplayed on my front panel. I know that a more elegant solution would be to display only as many rows as there are elements selected. So I can get the array size and then I want to display only that number of rows in the excel spreadsheet. I have done this with arrays (with the help of an open G vi) but I don;t know how to do it with this.
Sorry for not having posted code or screeen shots originally. It's quite a complex app with a lot of sub VIs. The good news is, I solved it! I got the array size, added that value to an offset to allow for headers, converted the number to a decimal string, concatenated that with a string constant representing the column letter, and passed that value to a Worksheet Range Invoke node as the cell 2 value. Sounds ugly, but it's fairly elegant and very robust.
