Hi johnwesley,
Welcome to the forum.

Many of the high-end power meters have built-in serial comms that allow you to export data to a PC, and they typically come with the ability to export that data into a spreadheet program such as Excel.

There are also many manufacturers of Data Aquisition Boards for PCs, as well as some never ones who have USB data aquisition products.

Google is your friend on this project.

PS, In the future, please refrain from duplicating post topics. This is an international forum, with working people in all time zones and it sometimes is a few hours or days before someone with a response is able to see your post and respond to it. I have deleted your other redundant postings.
