How do I Control WinDaq/XL from VBA?

It is possible to Start and Stop WinDaq/XL and control some of the import options from Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in Microsoft Excel.

Step 1: Add WinDaqXLVBA Add-In as a Reference to your VBA project.

Go to Tools>>References and put a check mark next to WinDaqXLVBA.

If WinDaqXLVBA does not appear as an available reference you may have to browse for the windaqxl.vba file. Click Browse, then go to C:\WinDaqXL folder, select windaqxl.vba. You will need to Browse for all file types to see the .xla file.

Step 2: Use WinDaqXLVBA functions from Excel VBA in your custom program. If you need access to a WinDaq/XL feature that is not listed below, submit a ticket online.

WinDaqXLVBA.TriggerChannels(Chn1 As String, Chn2 As String, Chn3 As String, Chn4 As String) Set up to 4 channels for applying trigger values. Channel designations for triggers 2-4 are optional.
WinDaqXLVBA.TriggerOperator Select the operator for each channel with a trigger value. Possible operators are =, >, <, <=, >=
WinDaqXLVBA.TriggerValues Select the trigger value for each channel that is set-up.
