( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The functionality to export or copy the graphs as images lies in the Excel application. You're best bet is to extract the images on a Windows machine. If that is absolutely not possible, then try the OpenOffice.org API.

Depending how many charts there are, and if you have access to a Windows machine, it might actually be faster to just copy them all to the clipboard, one by one, and paste them into Paint or Photoshop or IrfanView or whatever. This works quite well.

Good luck!

    [GrandFather]: discovering that one of the sensors for the device lies about the gain range it is using!
    [GrandFather]: However, by the end of the day I had discovered its deceptions and now have it working correctly, so yes, all's well that ends well. :-D
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, (hardware) APIs - I have a similar situation with Chrome and its API... It is fairly underdocumented and I guess I have to hunt...
    [Corion]: ... down supposedly working code to find out what I'm supposed to do
    [GrandFather]: I haven't any "working code" to inspect! I have to find ways to generate reference signals then check the numbers I get at the far end match.
    [GrandFather]: That's ok when the signal is a voltage, but there are three axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers in these things! A little invention is needed at times!
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Yeah, in that aspect, hardware is far more a black box than software
    [GrandFather]: Oh, and the manufacturer tells lies too! I'm sure they don't mean to, but I know for sure some of the stuff they say is just wrong. It's possible they don't understand what we are asking, but that's not a good look either
    [Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, unit testing hardware is fun, especially when the hardware is uncalibrated ...
