Hello dear friends,
I am new to this community and fairly new to NI as well. I have just ran across this project that requires me to upgrade the controls for a older Traction Test Machine. All of its control components, such PC, Control console and printer had gone obsolete. My task is to integrate a newer control and since the college that I work at just acquired LabView licence so I would like to give this a try.
So far it does look very doable, since I have being becoming familiar in how the LabView software works. I will appreciate if I can get a jump start on this interesting challenge. Thanks a bunch!
Solved! Go to Solution.
The college that I work for had already purchased a full professional version of LabView and that includes the report generator package that you suggest. I am more interested in the know-how from someone that has already gone through the process of implementing this type of solution. By the way, where it would be a better place for me to post my request? Thanks
Hi Peloflex, it would more suitable to post your question on the LabVIEW forums: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/bd-p/170
The Report Generation Toolkit is a great suggestion, as it allows you to implement lower level VIs that will generate, edit, and format reports for Word or Excel. As for implementing a solution, we do have multiple report generation examples in NI Example Finder. To find them, navigate to the "Help" tab in LabVIEW >> Find Examples >> Toolkits and Modules >> Report Generation for Microsoft Office.
