Issue Details

I have a TDMS file and I cannot convert it to an Excel file, I want the file at the end to be in .xlsx (Excel format) without the need to open Microsoft Excel®. 


  1. Install the OpenG Library. If you have issues with downloading or installing the add-on, take a look at the steps on this article on how to Download & Manage LabVIEW Add-ons with VI Package Manager (VIPM).
  2. Install the TDM Excel Add-In.
  3. Download the VI via this Example page.
  4. Open the VI with LabVIEW and give the VI the file path for your TDMS file and run it to convert the file to Excel.
