XL Report using Active X

Recommended Posts

Attached is an example that does this using report generation toolkit, but does it through ActiveX calls.  I think this needs to be ran on a workbook after all other writing has taken place, because it does it on a per worksheet view.  For me I had N work sheets already made, some with data, and some with charts and graphs, then calling this would set the text and logo to the footer.  Saved in 2015.

This is also working with my code but the problem is adding Signature line. if I use AddSignatureLine Mehtod then during creation of Excel report, it will open Signature dialog box that is not what i want using ActiveX.

Oh I'm sorry I'm was not familiar with a Signature Line.

One thing that I find useful is to use the Excel feature of recording a Macro, then looking at the generated code, and then translate that into LabVIEW.  The problem is I can't even create a signature line in a footer, in normal Excel.  If I click into the footer, then the Insert >> Text is all greyed out.  Still I enabled a macro recording, then recorded my operations, and added a signature line at a normal place in the worksheet and looked at the generated code and it was the following:

    ActiveWorkbook.Signatures.AddSignatureLine _

Not sure what it means but I'm guessing that you can't automate the creation of that signature line using the VBA this way and that it was designed to have a dialog prompt you for the settings for some reason.

Yes, You are right, we are not able to make it fully automate because We can only close pop-up dialog box manually.

      I have installed Labview 2020 on Dedian Buster using the rpm to deb conversion method via alien. Due to Architecture mismatch i deleted the *i386.rpm files before conversion.
      My Problem is that after creating a project at "Build Specification"-> "rigth click" i am only able to select "Source Distribution". Application does not show up as an option. 
      I will be grateful for any suggestions.
      Thank you in advance.

      CLA_ATM_QMH_PRACTICE.zipHi Folks,
      I'm taking the CLA exam in a few weeks and would like some feedback on the solution I put together (attached). A few specific questions:
      Can I dump tags in the VI Documentation of the VI like I did in Error Handler - Console Error.vi and get credit since there are instructions for developers to complete this work? This would be my strategy if I run out of time. 
      Does this seem like a passing solution? Why/why not?
      Where do you think I would lose the most points in this solution?
      Any other feedback on this exam or general strategy tips are greatly appreciated!
      Best Regards,
