Dewesoft offers the possibility to write the data into Microsoft Excel when in acquisition. This is achieved with the Excel Writer plugin.

When you want to write 'Text' channels into Excel, created as Data header or Global Variables, you need to set them up correctly or they won't be written to Excel or in some cases even the following error occurs:

Failed to write data to Excel cell: DataType Text-Ansi cannot be converted to OleVariant


We have two 'Text' channels in data header and one 'Text' channel as a global variable. The channels are shown in the following pictures:

The channels need to be added into 'Excel Single Cell Definitions' part as shown in the following picture

Then the channels are correctly written to Excel.
