Issue Details

Do you have any information how to transfer a file in a MongoDB directly from LabVIEW? 


There is no direct method to interact with MongoDB through LabVIEW. You can try calling (external link) assemblies built with MongoDB drivers in other programming languages, but this is not supported by NI.

Additional Information

National Instruments supports any database or data source that has ODBC or OLE DB drivers through the LabVIEW Database Connectivity Toolkit. The following list describes recommendations for which database client software to use:
  • Microsoft Access—NI recommends that you use the Microsoft Jet 4.0 or later OLE DB Provider. 
  • Microsoft SQL Server—NI recommends that you use the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server. 
  • Oracle—You must install Oracle Client software on the machine to which you install the Database Connectivity Toolkit. NI recommends that you use the Oracle Provider for OLE DB or later. You can download the Oracle Provider from the Oracle website at
