Export Exports acquired data to file formats compatible with Multisim or LabVIEW. You can also use the exported data as a reference channel for the Oscilloscope. When you export the data to Multisim, the Oscilloscope generates a CSV file; when you export the data to LabVIEW, the Oscilloscope generates a TDMS file. Refer to TDMS File Format (Oscilloscope) for more information about the exported TDMS file format.
