How do you create a 2-d array%3F
However, the BUILD ARRAY function only outputs a 1-d array to the WRITE TO SPREADSHEET FILE.vi.
Perhaps, more broadly, how does one put data into a 2-d array as it is collected? I think I am building two arrays simultaneously below, but, what I really want is to build a single 2-d array. Is this how you would do it? It looks clumsy connecting sequential BUILD ARRAY's together. Is this creating a 2-d array that I can search later by index and return the paired data?
Lastly, why does my front panel indicator only show data in the first column?? How do I make it display the data as it is collected across the rows?

Sorry, very simple minded here...how do pairs go as a 1-d array? I thought that (x,y) data must be a 2-d array...a column of "x's" and a column of "y's"? Wouldn't a 1-d array just be all x's? I admit I'm pretty new to understanding arrays.
" build your 1D array from both scalars" --> how do you do this?? I cannot find a "convert to scalar" on the pallette.
Also, here is the vi saved down to 2009, I think.
Here's a simpler way, just write out your X and Y as a 1D array each iteration. The Write will append your data as a column of X's and a column of Y's:
or generate all your values and then write once:
(fix the broken wire).
