Re: [IP] Software for Managing Diabetes



Bert,
Can you provide more specific info about how you do this?  I didn't think I was that slow, but I haven't even been able to save the data to a file, much less to open it again in excel.  These seem like obvious tasks so I must be missing somthing dumb.

Thanks!

Ruth

It's not as easy as it would if you could do more with accutility, however, at least you can get the information out of the meter.  As I do more, I will post it on the list.
