After data collection, data analysis is occasionally required. However, including the data analysis code within the data collecting code may result in bulky programming. Therefore, performing data analysis in a new VI is preferable in order to both make programming appear simple and improve debugging.
This article shows how to save the waveform graph data in a new VI for analysis purposes.

To be able to save the waveform graph data, you can:

  1. Press Ctrl + C to copy the graph to a new VI.

  2. Right click on the waveform graph data and select Data Operations > Make Current Value Default

  3. Save the new VI.

The value inside the graph will be stored and you can perform any analysis in the new VI.
