Issue Details

I have created several tasks in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), but I am unable to select from these tasks when I create a SignalExpress project.  Is there a way to use the tasks that I have already created?


Yes, you can import DAQmx Tasks that exist in MAX into a SignalExpress project.  
  1. Select Tools»Import NI-DAQmx Tasks From MAX...

      2. A dialog will appear and you can select the specific task that you want to import. Then click OK

Once imported, the task will be the same as a DAQmx Acquire step that you create from scratch. It will also include the same settings and calibration that you had set in NI MAX.
