1. Quickly Export Data for Offline Analysis

LabVIEW NXG provides tools integrated into the development environment that allow you to acquire and analyze your measurements without programming. For storage or for further analysis, you can export the data capture from the Data Pane.

When exporting data from the Data Pane, you can save in two file formats: TDMS and CSV. Learn more about the different file types in LabVIEW NXG.

2. Automate Saving and Reporting Data

Use the built-in file management functions in LabVIEW NXG to automate and customize how you save and share measurement data. You can automate logging data to disk using the standard file formats, such as binary, text, and CSV, by recording data inline to your data acquisition. Implement custom logic in your applications to trigger saving data based on certain conditions, such as operator input or an event, so you can get the data you need.

Download the example code to see how you can generate a report of your measurement data when a threshold is exceeded. If you don’t have NI data acquisition hardware, you can run this example using a simulate device.   

Use the Workbook.wbx document in the Automate Saving and Reporting Data.lvproject sample project to get started saving measurement data.
