RS232 COMMUNICATIONS

Question asked by chas on Dec 21, 2011
I have an agilent 34401a, IO library suite 16.1, window 7 and excel 2007.  I am having trouble when in excel and trying to input a reading from the dmm using serial RS232.  When I try to connect the dmm in excel from the add-in tool bar, nothing is there to connect to.  When I try to take a measurement it comes up with an error saying 'could not find device'.  I can communicate with the dmm through connect expert and such outside of excel, but when I go into excel it can not find it.  Do you have any suggestions or idea what is missing?

Thank you for your time and consideration.
