NX VB Journal to create EXCEL file

NX VB Journal to create EXCEL file


Does anybody have a simple it of example code of how to write to an EXCEL file from a NX visual basic journal please?

Kind regards,


RE: NX VB Journal to create EXCEL file

Yamada (he created SNAP and wrote the documentation) wrote a good guide on working with NX and Excel:

The guide above assumes that you have an author license (and a SNAP license, for some of the example code). If you do not have an author license, you cannot add a reference to the Excel library, but you can still effectively work with Excel (it's just more difficult).

Here are a few examples of working with Excel with no license (searching may turn up more):


If you use the example code from nxjournaling, I'd suggest adding in the "cleanup" code provided by Yamada; not all of the examples include it. Also, check the NXOpen samples folder that ships with NX; there is at least 1 example that uses Excel.
