Issue Details

I want to save the data within my multicolumn listbox to a file that can be read by spreadsheet applications like Excel. 

Solution

Use a Multicolumn Listbox property node to access ItemNames. These will be a 1D/2D array of strings according to the data within the listbox. 

One method to write these data to a spreadsheet format is to use the Write Delimited Spreadsheet.vi function. You can use this VI to create a text file readable by most spreadsheet applications.
