Hi there,

I have a scale which is connected to the computer. I am using Hyperterminal to communicate with the sacale via COM#. The problem is that hyperterminal only takes 500 readings to be captured, while I need it to work for few days.

Is there anyway that VB macro can be developed in Excel inorder to take the readings directly to Excel?

Do you have any other solution?

Thank You
