Owning Palette: Report Generation VIs

Requires: Base Development System

Appends text to the selected report. Wire data to the text input to determine the polymorphic instance to use or manually select the instance.

The selected report is the one you wire to report in. You can append the text to the current position of the cursor in the report or on a new line.

Use the pull-down menu to select an instance of this VI.

Append Report Text (str wrap)

format string specifies the number formatting to use when LabVIEW converts the numbers to characters. Use format string when you wire numeric data to the text input.
MS Office parameters (Report Generation Toolkit) specifies the point in a Microsoft Word or Excel report where you want an insertion to occur. The VI ignores this input for HTML and standard reports. You can specify a bookmark in Word or a named range or cell coordinates in Excel. If you set the report type to Word but do not specify a bookmark, the insertion occurs at the end of the document.
position contains the row and column coordinates of the point in an Excel worksheet from which the insertion occurs. Row and column values in Excel are zero-based, so the row and column coordinates of (0,0) correspond to cell A1.
rows specifies the row index.
columns specifies the column index.
name contains the name of the cell in a Microsoft Excel worksheet from which the insertion occurs.
bookmark contains the name of the bookmark in a Word document from which the insertion occurs.
report in is a reference to the report whose appearance, data, and printing you want to control. Use the New Report VI to generate this LabVIEW class object.
text is the information you want to include in the report.
append on new line? appends the information on a new line in the report when set to TRUE. The default is FALSE.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
report out is a reference to the report whose appearance, data, and printing you want to control. You can wire this output to other Report Generation VIs.
start out (Report Generation Toolkit) represents the index of the character at the beginning of the text inserted in the Microsoft Word document. The VI ignores this input for HTML and standard reports.
end out (Report Generation Toolkit) represents the index of the character at the end of the text inserted in the Microsoft Word document. The VI ignores this input for HTML and standard reports.
error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
