For example, a spreadsheet created in LabVIEW may be formatted as follows:
entry11 entry12 entry13
entry21 entry22 entry23 ...
To see the difference between the format above,and that of an Excel spreadsheet, open a tab-delimited text file in a text editor, such as Notepad. The text should have the delimited format you specified。
Now, open an Excel workbook in the same text editor and you will see a great deal more than just your data. The additional characters are all Excel-specific formatting information.
In addition, you may consider the
Append Table to Report.vi ,
Append File to Report.vi ,
and/or Excel specific VIs found in the Report Generation for Microsoft Office toolkit. These VIs will allow you to include additional parameters specific to MS Office (Word and Excel.)
