    How to List Element Attributes in Processbook


      I have an element that has several (15) child elements based on a template. The child elements contain fieldsthat has a lab variable name, lab variable value, lower limit, upper limit, and the status (Low, OK, High). I wish to display the latest values in a tabular form for eacdh element and I was wondering if it was possible to do this as using ERD?


      Right now my only option that I am aware of is to create value fields individually for each value (15 * 5 = 75 value fields) I would like to just create a group of 5 and set the element name. Is there anyway to possibly do this or something like this?


      Thanks in Adavance

          PI OLEDB Enterprise can work and is useful for the above when used w/transpose functions (see examples in the OLEDB Ent. User Manual), and populate a grid or even Excel.

              Hi Mike,


              How about adding 5 value symbols to your ProcessBook display and making each of them exhibit the value of one attribute of the element selected in the "Element Relative Display" pane?


              - element "childA" selected:






              - element "childB" selected:




              For details on how to do this, you may want to check the section "Add Element Relative Data to a Dynamic Symbol" in the PI ProcessBook User Guide, available for download as a pdf file from the vCampus Download Center (under vCampus Library > vCampus PI Products Kit > Client Products > PI ProcessBook) and also accessible as built-in help in ProcessBook by pressing F1.


              Please let us know if it is something along these lines that you were thinking of. A set of 5 individual value symbols is not exactly tabular, but it is something that may fit in your use case.
