hen you install ThermaCAM Researcher, examples of Excel spreadsheets containing VBA macros are saved on your computer. Depending on your OS, the exact location varies. In the case of Windows XP and Researcher version 2.9, it is under C:\Program Files\FLIR Systems\ThermaCAM Researcher Pro 2.9\Examples.
In this folder, consider for instance the two files named OLEAUT.IRS, and OLEAUT.XLS. The first one contains a researcher session that works with macros contained in an Excel spreadsheet, the second one. The macros are not protected, and editable for the operators to understand how to structure a program.
Consider for instance "GetBoxAreaTemperatures". It transfers the content of a rectangular area in a worksheet. It may serve as a base for what you need.
Then, on the installation CD, there is a PDF files detailing all the Properties and Methods that are available to develop automated programs on ThermaCAM Researcher.
I also suggest you go to the support web page http://flir.custhelp.com.
