OpenOfficeCalc Link

This Windaq add-on provides a live link between Windaq and OpenOffice.org's Calc by eavesdropping on the data stream in DATAQ's WinDaq  acquisition software . Due to its low popularity, OpenOffice Calc is normally installed as a hidden add-on. Please use Windaq Add-on Manager to add it to Windaq's menu if you wish to invoke it from WinDaq Acquisition Software's add-on menu

VB source codes are included to demonstrate  how to write a VB program to export data to OpenOffice.Calc directly   If you wish to convert the program to Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition (VBX2008),  check this out
