Hello,

Is anybody out there familiar with data acquisition from a serial port
directly into excel. I know the basic commands for my instrument, I just
need some hints (maybe a sample spreadsheet) on how to 

1. establish the communication with a COM port from within excel (Win 3.1,
   v.4.0)
2. send data (keyword commands) to the instrument through the port
3. recieve data (formatted text) in excel 

Thanks for any lead,

Claude
