hi everyone, i have an 34401A multimeter and im trying to log data readings from the multimeter into a PC using rs232. I have already the installed Agilent Intuilink software. However, when i try to use the vb samples like 'rs232 meas config' it cant detect my multimeter. i placed my multimeter at com1 and here is the address i use in my vbcode = [COM1::BAUD=9600,PARITY=NONE,SIZE=8,HANDSHAKE=DTR_DSR]. am i missing something here? please help. m just a newbie in this stuff.. thanks in advance.
