  • I need to know if you can use Excel and MS Access in RR?

    I'm looking to create reports on my car. I would like to store the data into MS Access and display it using Excel in the RR application. Is this possible? I have done some searching but don't really find much on it.

    Thanks

      There is a Application object but no way to point it to Excel. Should I use a different type of object in the editor?

      Please let me know thanks

              1) You don't have to make a separate skin for them, you can just add it as an item in your LAUNCH folder and then run them from that skin.

              2) If you do want to make a custom .skin for them, then you were on the right track, you just need to get the window name right. It's not "Reports". It's probably "Excel" or if you want it to autoload a file then you add that filename to the command line and then the window name would probably be "Excel - Reports" or something like that.

                Yes I wanted it to come up on the .skin its self. I have a .skin named Report.skin and when I click a button I wanted it the launch Excel onto the .skin file. Like you can have the browser do. It's ok for now because I'm working on another part of the .skins this evening. I'm learning about what makes things tick for my gauges. But if you know of a way to make it open on just the .skin please advice.
                Thanks
