    Inserts a Scatter with Straight Lines chart to a worksheet of the Excel report. You can add several curves to the default chart by referencing further data columns in x columns or y columns. To display data in other chart types, create your own Excel template and connect it to template of the New Excel Report VI.

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: All devices (only within an optimized FPGA VI)

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
