Issue Details

From DIAdem 2014 onwards, the DataFileHeaderAccess command is no longer available.


From DIAdem 2014 onwards, the DataFileHeaderAccess command is no longer available. Use the CreateDataFileHeaderAccess function instead. If you have to use the outdated DataFileHeaderAccess command, complete the following steps:

  1. Copy the attached DataFileHeaderAccess.vbc file to the Resource subfolder of the DIAdem program folder, for example, "c:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\DIAdem 2014\Resource\".
  2. Select the DIAdem SCRIPT panel.
  3. Select Settings»Extensions»User Commands»Add.
  4. Select the file type Encrypted VBScripts (*.VBC).
  5. Select the DataFileHeaderAccess.vbc file from the Resource subfolder of the DIAdem program folder.
  6. Click Open.
  7. Click Close in the user command dialog box.

Afterwards you can use the DataFileHeaderAccess command. Save your settings in the desktop file with Settings»Save As in order to automatically register the user command when DIAdem restarts.
