34980A VISA Com and VCNET 2005 Measurement Example Program

This program sets the 34980A for a simple scan that makes both DCV and type J 
thermocouple temperature measurements. The program also checks the instrument and 
module identification to make sure there is communication between the 34980A and 
the computer, and the correct module is installed. The returned data is entered 
into a list box.

The program requires a 34921A MUX module to operate correctly. Program must be modified
for other modules.

This program uses the Agilent VISA Com COM objects to program the instrument.
