PI DataLink 2015 connect via code

Hi everyone,

 

we are trying to update an old PI DataLink report to work with new DataLink 2015.

 

The old VBA code used a specific PI user to connect Excel and DataLink through PI-SDK to a PI Server using the object PISDKDlg.Connections.

With recent versions of DataLink, PI SDK objects do not work as the DataLink connection are done through AF-SDK and connecting the PI -SDK part won't help.

 

I was thinking about using an intermediate AF Wrapper library to accomplish the connection operation for DataLink and I suppose it should work easily.

Any other idea?
