View Full Version : Tenth of seconds when using StampDAQ?

Any good ideas how to get excel to count milliseconds when using StampDAQ without any additional stamp hardware? The macro only displayes the time down to seconds. I'm using the stamDAQ for a tipping bucket rain gage application and need better time resolution than seconds.

Sven,
This Excel file version has a "TIMER" feature that will return the time down to milliseconds since the last time a clear was issued. Use just like the rest of the directives ("TIME", etc), though if you use in the 1st column of the distributed spreadsheet you will have to change the formatting.

Also, don't use across the midnight hour since it is based on the system timer which resets at midnight.

Over christmas break I'll try to make a new installer with a new version of the control supporting more COM ports, and having this TIMER. I just loath changing the help files :)


After you download, remove the .txt on the file name.
