Owning Palette: Excel Specific VIs

Requires: Report Generation Toolkit. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Excel Graphs and Pictures VIs to format graphs and images in Microsoft Excel reports. The Excel Graph VIs only manipulate graphs you create using the LabVIEW Report Generation Toolkit for Microsoft Office. The VIs do not manipulate graphs you create in Excel manually.

Note  If you create a graph that includes more than 3,999 points per plot, Microsoft Office causes an error to occur.

The VIs on this palette can return general LabVIEW error codes, specific report generation error codes, or specific Report Generation Toolkit error codes.
