HP 48g11 Ascii transfer to PC
Message #1 Posted by Stuart Sprott on 29 Nov 2004, 6:34 a.m.

Hi,

As far as I can see you can only transfer data from the HP to a PC in binary form. It would be handy to be able to transfer in Ascii also. In Ascii you can can read it and numerical data can be used in PC programs such Excel.

I know you can do the above on a HP 48GX. Is there any way around this problem ?

I believe the 48GII is similar enough to the 49G+, and someone correct me for Mr. Sprott's sake if I'm wrong, but if you shift (right, I think) and choose I/O, you can set the calculator to transfer in ASCII mode. It should be a choice on one of the "choose boxes" within the I/O menu.

I don't a 48gII, but I guess that it's similar to the 49G and 49g+.

If using HPComm (or any other Kermit-based application), then yes, use an ASCII transfer, either by choosing it in an input form or by clearing flag -35. HPComm is available here.

If using Conn4x, be sure to use the current build, available here, and use a "text" transfer, chosen in Conn4x itself. Conn4x doesn't use flag -35.

Regards,
James
