vrf Declaring variables

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 22, 2004
Use multiple tables within the dB, assuming you are using a dB.  My dB
expert built for me such:

First table has header data describing the test data records, i.e.. Unit
under test, serial, date, etc.  Within this record is a "field" that is an
auto-number(integer) that is used as a "link" into the data table.  Hence
each record within the data table has this link, we call the data link field
within the data table "ULINK", note also that you may continue, ad
infinitum, by placing another link into this record to point to items within
another table. 

(Also within the dB, when looking at the first table, there is a drop down
for all records reporting to the table.  You will need to ask a DB guy how
he did this, if you pressure me, I'll get it for you.)

Get it?

Hi all,

I have a problem here. How do I declare a variable in such a way: I need a
Record that contains other Records. Topmost would be TstRslt record which
contains the following fields: TstStpPath, SavPath, SMUData, VMUData, Temp.
SMUData and VMUData are records containing Voltage and Current. Voltage and
Current are two 1D arrays containing an arbitrary amount of data, depending
on the user test performed and may contain from 100 to 5000 points of data.
Trouble is, I cannot create Records within Records, the field type doesnt
allow me to select Record. Nor can I leave the array size variable. It
always has a predetermined size which I dont need.

Finally, would it be easier to implement this in VEE, or am I better off
just dumping everything into excel as I read them from the instrument, adn
readback from excel later on?

Thx.
