Watch how a simple Visual Basic for Excel program is used to send a *IDN? and retrieve the response. In addition a subroutine and button is added to reset the instrument. An Agilent 34411A Digital Multimeter is used as it has USB, LAN and a GPIB interface. It is easy to switch instruments by using the VISA address. You can down load the Agilent Connection Expert for free from the Agilent.com.

You can find additional details for the 34411A here:
