Last Modified: January 12, 2018

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.

x columns

X values of an Excel chart. To reference data for a chart, enter the column name. For example, use MyXData to display the data of the column MyXData in a chart.

y columns

Y values of an Excel chart. To reference data for a chart, enter the column name. For example, use MyYData to display the data of the column MyYData in a chart.

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

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

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