I am using a parallel port ADC10 to capture data directly into an Excel 2000 workbook. I am using the sample function (which calls the ADC1032.dll file) contained in the Excel workbook previously emailed to me by tech support.
My problem is that although the code works fine on a first pass, if I attempt to execute the code again I get a result saying 'Unable to open ADC'. An examination of the adc10_get_unit_info output returns a string of 'Pico.sys not found'. How do I close the ADC and then reopen it? If I close the workbook and then reopen it, this works, but I would rather do this through code. I have tried calling both the adc10_set_unit and adc10_close_unit statements, but they seem to have no effect. Any guidance & advice greatly appreciated!
Incidentally, I am using Excel 2000 (SP3) on a notebook running Windows XP (SP2).
