reading the timestamp column in the txt file

Hi pros labview

I work with labview 8.6 for about 1 week and I need help in reading txt files.

the textfiles that I read have 2-11 columns.

the first column shows the time and others show different channels where I measured the voltages.

It is therefore no problem with reading of the voltage-columns and put it on the y - axis to a chart of the vi but I can't the time on the x-axis column.

I took the basic "read" and it has changed a little according to my needs.

hope you can help me, getting time on the x-axis column. (perhaps with a xy chart?)

the vi and I have to read txt file are attached...


Here is an example. The formatting of the x axis relative time will now do something.

    Hello world

    I'm new to Flash so it's maybe a silly question but I wonder how I can save the data to a .txt file. This .txt file will be stored on the same server that the flash file is stored on and runs. I will, eventually, be able to access the data previously stored on the my flash movie .txt file.

    Any AS3 for this?

  • How to read the txt file that has words in between?

    Hi all

    I'm using Labview 8.2.

    I would like to read a text file.  I have given (after whenever he was on average more than 100 waveforms) several times recorded on the file.  The idea is to further improve the SNR in post processing by averaging once again the data (which was on average about 100 wave forms).

    I can get LabView to save the data in the file several times, then it keeps joins.

    The problem is to read data from labview, so I can on average now again.  The problem is the labview separates data sets with the following:

    "Channel 1".
    9925 samples
    Date 28/10/2008
    Time 17:16:11.638363
    X_Dimension time
    X 0 - 3.0125000000000013E - 3
    Delta_X 2.500000E - 6

    Then when I read it, he sees only the first set of data.

    Can someone tell me please how to read all the datasets under labview?

    I am attaching the file I want to read 'acquiredwaveform.txt' and the VI base (really basic btw) to play the file.

    Thank you

    This seems to be a standard LVM-file.  You can read segments of different data using the VI Express LVM loop (make sure that the file retains its extension .lvm).  I modified your example to show this.

    Note that my example is quite inefficient. Table of primitive construction causes a massive memory copy whenever it is used, and you would be probably better on average that you read in.  I made this way to make it more obvious how read segments of a file LVM.  In the process, I noticed that you have a good amount of phase jitter (zoom in on the graph of all the three waveforms).  With an average simple will make you smear on your waveforms.  You can either fix the problem in hardware (recommended) or phase shift your data so it lines up before on average.  If you need help with it, let us know.

  • How do I sort the rows of the table that belongs to the same name and save the .txt file?


    I am facing a problem, I read the .txt file that has several lines and columns.

    Third column represents the name of the group, as Group 1, group 2 and group 3. attached .txt file in the annex.

    I wanted to generate the wise group .txt file, as all the raws that 3rd element name group 1 must be in a .txt file and all lines that has 3 name group 2 element must be a .txt file.

    I hope that I explained my problem.

  • read the specific number of the txt file


    Anyone know how to read specific numbers to a txt file.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Please find enclosed my VI and the txt file

    My best regards


    The format of your example tab.txt file in do you need?

    If not, I do not consider using a format such as LabVIEW Config File VI or a common standard such as XML.

    If you don't need the exact format in the example, then you will need to write your own parser for him.

  • Cannot read the PDF files created by the FTP adapter


    I cannot read the pdf files generated by the FTP adapter with its default settings.

    Can someone guide me how to proceed with him. I guess I have to change something in the mechanism of coding in the FTP adapter outbound connection Pool, but do not know what is to be.

    Thank you


    Hi all

    I got the solution. I was unable to read .pdf files because the FTP adapter send files just by changing the extension of .xml to .pdf .txt is the reason why it was not readable.

    We had to write a java code to convert the .xml file .pdf and then PAA to the FTP adapter.

  • 25 Firefox is unable to read the configuration file on new install

    I try to install Firefox 25.0 on a XP - SP3 machine and receive the error "failed to read the Configuration file. Please contact your system administrator.

    Make sure that your means of signalling of other vi until the output is not a condition of competition inadvertently. Don't forget that LabVIEW is data flow language, to make sure that certain events occur in a certain order, that there is a dependecy signal to force the order of execution. I got bit by that recently, when we used a functional overall to report all the different programmatic loops in the vi while it was time to stop. There was at least one place where, under certain conditions, the Terminal stop loop became the front signal had executed the "stuff" in the loop. Put an in/out error on the FG, then put in the error line after the functions (in fact file writing) guaranteed that the Scriptures of file occur before that the 'exit' condition was assessed.

That's the problem with Windows XP I have check with another computer with Vista and it seems to be ok. It seems that on XP the buffer (refnum?)  is not clear and it retains the previous values.

    1. where are the files located?
    2. are you able to open this file?

    This can happen if the file is used by some programs / demand or is corrupt.

    Follow these steps:

    Method 1: Check if you are able to delete the files in safe mode.

    Method 2: Ownership of files and check if you are able to delete.

  • usefulness of reading the measurement file express vi


    I found reading file express vi measure in LV7.1 does not read from the beginning of the file when you run it the second time. Instead, it resume from where it left off last time. Usually, the user would read the entire file measure each time. So when you try to read the second time, it will show an error window saying that it has reached the end of the file (because he was reading the entire file first).

    I wonder how useful to resume from the last stopping point is? Is there a way to start over each time that the VI excute it?

    I'm sure that's how reading file measure works 90%. Whenever she is called in a single run of the application, it will start off the coast where it was stopped. You will need to work with the low level screw to get what you want to do.

    This Express VI works in a similar way the screws and the following functions:
    Open/create/replace file
    Read text file
    Read binary file
    Read the spreadsheet file
    File dialog box
    Scan to file

    And, you can always use the node to set the file Position to set the position at the beginning of the file.
