Re: 2182A via RS-232 into Excel

I think I have found my issue. I was not correctly sending the CR to terminate the command, whereas with the *IDN? I was adding a ;. However, with each :READ? I still get ERROR-213. Is there a way to eliminate that error or the associated beep?

Re: 2182A via RS-232 into Excel

With *IDN? I do get a correct and full response.

Other commands appear to be successful, such as ":SENS:FUNC 'VOLT'" and ":SENS:CHAN 1". Are there other query commands I should try?

2182A via RS-232 into Excel

I am trying to use Excel VBA to read and store data from the 2182A, but I am having trouble with reading data. I have tested successfully using the "*IDN?" command, but ":READ?" is giving me trouble. Are there any resources available discussing the use of Excel and instruments like the 2182A?
