Installer appears not to work - Mar 20, 2016
Same as other commenters here. Installer shows nothing to install. Unzipped and attempted to install manually and only some products appeared to install. Still not working with MS Excel Viewer.
No Excel 2016 support - Mar 18, 2016
As of this date 3/18/2016 this addon does not work with Excel 2016
software cannot be installed on PC with Labview 2015 - Dec 3, 2015
Downloaded the NITDMEXCEL_2015-0-0.exe. and unzipped successfully. In the setup window "Start Installation" it states installation summary: No software will be installed or removed. There is no possibility to press the "Next-Button". Installation is not possible.
TDM Excel Add In installer doesn't work - Nov 20, 2015
The installer does not function (Shows nothing to install) on Windows 7, Office 2013, and LabView 2015. Please fix the installer at http://ftp.ni.com/pub/gdc/epd/nitdmexcel_15-0-0.exe so this can be cleanly installed. I did get it to work by manually installing all of the msi items under Products, but there's no indication that the way I did it was correct.
Current version will not work for Additional Installers - Nov 8, 2015
I am still developing in 2013 SP1 (on purpose). I am trying to include this add In for the installers, but it will not work because it says 2015. I haven't been able to find a 2013 version on line. I am traveling in Asia and this is preventing me from building a proper installer.
Import of floats with NAN does not get read correctly - Jul 26, 2015
The resulting excel table from importing a TDMS-file, which contains an array of floats with NAN, shows "65535" at all positions that are supposed to be NAN. In order to make a good looking graph, all "65535" must be removed manually and replaced by ""(blank). It would therefore be great if Nan could be imported as <blank> already by the import program so no extra steps would be needed.
not working - May 4, 2015
I have the same issue as was reported on August 2014. The installation summary claims nothing needs to be installed, while the add-in is not available in excel and had never been installed in this PC
Will not install on PC running LabVIEW 2014 - Aug 28, 2014
Downloaded the NITDMEXCEL_2014-0-0.exe. successfully. Unzipped the files and ran the .setup application. The installer initialises and checks for updates but at the Installation Summary it states "No software will be installed or removed" and the "Next>>" option is unavailable. A fix may be required for LabVIEW 2014.
COM Automation not working with latest version - Oct 11, 2013
Version 3.4 worked using COM automation
to import TDMS files into Excel. Machines
with 3.5 did not, and upgrading v3.4 to 3.5
made my currently working code start
throwing errors "unhandled exception".
Upgrades make things worse -- Whiskey
Excel 2013 Compatability - Aug 8, 2013
For those who are interested, I have tested this
Add-In with Excel 2013 32 bit and it works.
Importer doesn't show scaling properties - Jan 24, 2013
Importer does not show scaling properties
from TDMS file created with "TDMS Create
Scaling Information.vi". When you open the
same file using the TDMS File Viewer vi. the
scaling properties are shown. The file I am
using to test this was generated by the NI
example "C:\Program Files\National

TDM Excel Add-in 2011 Capabilities - Aug 16, 2011
As an update to some of the questions posted
here over the past few month:
The current version (2011) of the TDM Excel
Add-in works with Excel versions "2003 and
higher", which includes version 2007 and 2010
- and includes support for Excel 2010 64-bit.
We are not going to support Excel version
before 2003, since Microsoft has ended
support for these versions years ago.
The issue regarding Excel 2007 row limitation
has been addressed by R&D, the same applies
to double-clicking on TDM(S) files - which
will open Excel or DIAdem depending on the
default application setting of the Windows
The TDM Excel Add-In comes with in COM
automation interface to automate loading
TDM(S) files into Excel.
2011 version - Jul 19, 2011
This new version supports Excel 2010 64-bit
and has a fix for more than 65535 rows in
Offce 2010 64-bit support - Jun 8, 2011
When will this plug-in support 64-bit Excel?
VB with TDM C DLL - Jun 2, 2011
i want to use VB 2010 to read a tdm file，i
also download TDM C DLL，but i don't know how
to operate，can you give me some examples
the new 2010-version (3.2) still does not support importing more than 65535 rows - Sep 13, 2010
in office 2007 or higher there is still no
support in loading more than 65535
rows when running the TDM-importer.
I hoped it was fixed by now !!!
Is there perhaps a way to have a little
more control when using the import from
VBA, it always seems to open in a new
Another item on my wishlist is to have a
startingoffset and a decimator for
specific channels. I have a dataset
which contains 10 channels at 200 Hz
and 1 channel at 2000 Hz. For data-
analysis using excel it would be nice to
have it decimated to 200 Hz so I will
probably not run into the 65535 limitation.
does not work with excel 2007 - Aug 13, 2010
I installed this plug in excel2003 - works well
it does not show up in excel2007 - I can not
access my tdms files
Excel 2010 - Jun 18, 2010
It is working with Office Excel 2010 (Beta).
TDM Import breaks double-click - Jun 8, 2010
With The TDM Import add-in loaded, I
can no longer use double-click to open
Excel files. Excel launches, and there is
a toolbar with a blank screen - not even
empty worksheet. If I click on the add-in
and cancel, or even click on add-
in "About", then the file open completes.
Still, it is inconvenient.
Does not fully support excel 2007 row limit - Sep 21, 2009
Excel 2007 supports up to a million rows
(1,048,576) While Excel 2003 and below only
supported roughly 65,000 rows.
The tdms importer limits you to the old
65,000 rows and doesnt allow the new limits!
While this is an improvement over the older
version of the plugin which would simply
crash if you tried to import more than 65,000
values, this still needs to be fixed.
I want to import a big tdms file into excel.
I am recording at 200Hz for an hour. That's
720,000 rows. Excel can handle it. TDMS
Is this supposed to work with Excel 2007? - Apr 6, 2009
I can't get it to install (I have Excel 2007).
The installation runs, I accept the
license agreement, then at the next
screen it says "No software will be
installed". No options to continue.

For some reasons, the Add-Ins tab
doesn't show up for me in Excel 2007
even though the addin appears to have
been read at startup. Any idea why the
Add-Ins tab is not showing up? Note, I
disabled the addin, removed the addin,
rebooted, re-installed, and reran Excel
but this didn't work.
Should be available for Excel 2000 - Jan 28, 2009
This should really be available for 2000
how to allow all users to use tool? - Nov 17, 2008
Is there a way to make it so that
non-administrator users can use the tool?
From what I've seen only the installer
(admin) can access the tool. I'd like all
users to be able to use the tool once it has
been installed by an admin.
needs option to not load certain data - Sep 25, 2008
It would be very helpful if there was a
property you could set that would cause it
not to load particular data. For example, I
have a file that has my spreadsheet data
saved in it, but I also save images as a byte
array. If there was a special group property
you could set that would disable this
application from loading the image data then
it would stop excel from loading massive
amounts of data.
TDM Excel Add-in Capabilities - Sep 24, 2008
The currently posted TDM Excel Add-in works
with Excel versions "2003 and higher", which
includes version 2007.
The currently posted TDM Excel Add-in does
correctly import date/time channels into
Excel-- note that Excel tracks date/time as
the number of fractional days since about
1900. You may need to change the formatting
of the datetime channel column in Excel to
see the datetime information the way you want it.
An error report has been entered for the TDM
Excel Add-in for the 256 column limitation in
Excel 2007. Hopefully a new version will be
posted soon which removes this artificial
How about a version for Excel 2007 - Sep 12, 2008
256 Channel limit - Mar 18, 2008
Note that there is a 256 channel limit (per
tab) in Excel. This add-in will only display
the first 256 channels. You can probably get
around this by writing code to split the TDM
file into multiple smaller files or create
your own Excel converter VI that would place
256 channels per tab.
Or you could just use DIAdem...you know you
want to...all the cool people are doing it. (-;

Needs Timestamp Data (#2) - Oct 31, 2007
I confirm that a time stamp data column would
be very useful, if not necessary, also for my
company (we manufacture hydraulic pumps,
mainly for chemical or oil and gas
companies); in fact, also for legal/contract
issues, we have to recall the exact time in
which a variation of the conditions happens.
Thank you very much for your attention.
Needs timestamp data - Sep 6, 2007
This would be very helpful for my
application, but the file data is transported
to excel without any timing information,
making it difficult to graph the results
correctly. It would be great if the first
column on every sheet contained timestamp
data for each row.
I don't suppose the source code is available
so that we can add improvements ourselves?
