FlexPro and Excel scripts for Data export

Experienced MS Excel and FlexPro users can examine the preformatted scripts and macros that are loaded in the \/Scripts subdirectory, and learn how to create their own scripts for export.

 

NOTE: The available scripts depend on the Dewesoft version and may change.

NOTE: Please note that FlexPro and Excel export REQUIRE that these applications be installed properly already on this computer, or else the exporting will fail.

The concept is a nice one: once the script is created, just load any data file and run the script. What happens next is a big time-saver. Dewesoft runs this script:

  • automatically starting the other application (you will see a notice on the screen that it is starting the other application, and there will be a slight delay as it does so and establishes communication)
  • creates the data-set and
  • runs the script.

Let‘s say that you have a script that takes four incoming signals, runs 3rd octave analysis on them, creates a polished looking report, complete with your company‘s title bar and logo, automatically puts in the data and other variables from the data file, and formats it for your color printer. After you click the Export button and this process runs, you will see your final report on the screen, and just need to click print to complete your report!

This is the power of “hot script” ActiveX data exporting from Dewesoft to either MS Excel or FlexPro.

Typical FlexPro screen:

Typical MS Excel screen:

NOTE: Our MS Excel export function knows about Excel‘s built-in limitation of 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns per worksheet. If your data is longer than that, it simply creates multiple-worksheets within the workbook that it creates! It also makes a simple chart with the first several thousand data points for each input channel shown. You can use all of MS Excel built-in tools to change the chart format and make additional calculations and graphical outputs. But please be aware that MS Excel is not intended to handle million of data points.

Template management controls

You can easily create your own scripts in MS Excel or FlexPro, or edit the existing ones.

Just press the plus button to create a new one or pencil to change an existing script.

to_FlexPro_tool_bar

To delete an existing script simply select it and press the minus button.

When you press the plus button, you have to enter a Setup name, Description and a comment for the new script:

to_FlexPro_Add_new_template

When you confirm your entries click on Process button or select Edit button to change an existing script, MS Excel or FlexPro will automatically start with currently selected template.

NOTE: For more details about creating scripts please refer to the original MS Excel or FlexPro documentation.
