Transporting data received from RS232 to computer excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.  I need to monitor the operation of an emergency communication system that uses a microcontroller master and slave.  I want to send a token from the master microcontroller to the slave and back to the master.  Once the token reaches the master, I want to sent a 'system ok' message to the computer via hypertermal.  Once it gets there, I wish to transport it t ms excel and time stamp it as a record of serviceability of the system.   This will happen every 5 minutes

  • Hello,

    If you have any attempts code-wise please show the code so that whomever is looking to assist does not go in the wrong direction unless you are willing to follow a different code path.

    Also, please specify the version of Visual Studio, Framework version and some more details about the microcontroller e.g. are there any SDK or API for this.

    Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmarked them if they provide no help, this will help others who are looking for solutions to the same or similar problem. Contact via my Twitter (Karen Payne) or Facebook (Karen Payne) via my MSDN profile but will not answer coding question on either.

    NuGet BaseConnectionLibrary for database connections.
