Image name to Excel

(Originally posted by atwhiteley on 7/27/2006)

How do you get the name of the image you are working on to be exported to a cell in Excel. I have been trying to use various commands but I cannot make it work. Any ideas?

    The Data Collector can capture the image name directly, and Data Collector results can be sent to Excel.

    Alternatively, you can obtain the image name with the macro command:

    Dim imName as string *255
    ret = IpDocGetStr(INF_NAME, DOCSEL_ACTIVE, imName)

    This string can be written to the Output Window with IpOutput( ) commands (or IPrint( ), which appends a CR/LF to the end of the string), and the Output Window can be used to export the data to Excel. Record sending the Output Window contents to Excel for that.
