PLX-DAQ Graph

thanks to the help given to my on this forum I could multitask my arduino, but I still have no idea how to make daigrams or graphics with PLX-DAQ, If someone could help me please.

PLX-DAQ doesn't run on the Arduino, so this is not the place to be asking.

PLX-DAQ is an Excel addin. You problem has nothing to do with the Arduino, and everything to do with Excel. Go ask Microsoft.

I meant the code, what do I have to add (commands) to see a graph, the code is attached to th question, and in that code I could send analog reading from 0 to 1023, I just want to graph those nombers in real time

Your Arduino program has to output data on the serial line, while an older version of Excel is running the PLX-DAQ macro on a PC.

Google "arduino plxdaq" for examples.

Your first problem is one of how to properly send the data from Arduino to Excel, which has everything to do with Serial.print commands in Arduino, and this is a good place to be asking about that. Only an idiot would go and ask Microsoft, or send you there, as you can be pretty certain that Microsoft wouldn’t have a clue. This particularly applies because, not only is it a third party macro, but also ( your second problem) it only works with older versions of Excel, I believe Office 2007 and older, thereby probably ensuring that Microsoft wouldn’t want to know.

This might help you. You just need to send the appropriate data from Arduino and the rest is done in Excel.

Essentially, PLX is a freebie macro that enables Excel to act a s a terminal. You are just updating a CSV file live over serial, and a lot faster than you can do it manually! I use it with Office 2000. If you are stuck with the latest version, begging, borrowing, or stealing Office 2000 is a really good idea. Actually buying it is up to you, but PLX is so good that I submit 2000 is a legitimate upgrade for Arduino Users.

OP implies that he is able to send data to the PLX-DAQ plugin. Once the data is in Excel, making a graph is strictly an Excel problem.
