When executing min/max (summary calculation) on a string tag, an error 


Cannot do summary calculation on non-numeric data is generated.




I understand the PI OldDB is based on the SDK. Why is it that I can get the maximum


of a string using oIeDB, but I get an error when executing this query using the sdk.




Does the oleDB control reads all the values and internally calculate the maximum (or minimum, total etc)
