This VI will convert a TDMS file that was generated by LabVIEW or LabVIEW Signal Express into a text file. LabVIEW Signal Express will do this for you in the configuration settings, but what if you want to do this in LabVIEW? That is where this VI will do the trick. This VI will return the channel names, their correspondsing start times of acquisition, the time interval between samples and the waveform data.




1. Open TDMS_to_Text File_SE

2. Choose the file path of the attached Voltage.tdms file in the VI.

3. Create a text file and give it a name.

4. Choose the file path of the text file in the VI.

5. Run the VI

6. Open the text file and enjoy.
