## To Real Matrix

 Real 2D Array specifies a two-dimensional array. The elements in Real Matrix are of the same type as the elements in Real 2D Array. The order of the elements in Real Matrix is the same as the Real 2D Array order of the elements.

## To Column Vector

 Real 1D Array specifies a one-dimensional array. The elements in Real Matrix (Column Vector) are of the same type as the elements in Real 1D Array. The order of the elements in Real Matrix (Column Vector) is the same as the Real 1D Array order of the elements.

## To Complex Matrix

 Complex 2D Array specifies a complex two-dimensional array. The elements in Complex Matrix are of the same type as the elements in Complex 2D Array. The order of the elements in Complex Matrix is the same as the Complex 2D Array order of the elements.

## To Complex Column Vector

 Complex 1D Array specifies a complex one-dimensional array. The elements in Complex Matrix (Column Vector) are of the same type as the elements in Complex 1D Array. The order of the elements in Complex Matrix (Column Vector) is the same as the Complex 1D Array order of the elements.

## Array To Matrix Details

If the array elements are not real or complex double-precision floating-point numbers, LabVIEW converts the array elements to the closest data type.

LabVIEW stores the elements of 1D arrays in the first column of the matrix.
