    Using Piconfig Utility




      I am uploading the data from test file for the Digital Tag (Classic, Lab) using Piconfig utility. The Data format is


      @mode edit,t
      @table pisnap
      @istr tag, time, value
      BP1sd1mi_002_1,14-Jun-11 22:48:58:000,1
      BP1sd1mi_002_1,14-Jun-11 22:48:57:000,1
      BP1sd1mi_002_1,14-Jun-11 22:48:56:000,0
      BP1sd1mi_002_1,14-Jun-11 22:48:55:000,0.....


      The upload in PIConfig utility shows all the records are added sucessfully.. but when I try to see the data in SMT --> Data --> Archive Editor.. it shows ??????1 or ??????0 in value column against the timestamp generated..


      I tried to generate the Live data and connected through OPC for the same tag.. It shows & Achive the data correctly in the form of ON/OFF..


      Kindly let me know what could be the problem in this..

          Hi David,


          this is probably best suited for techsuport - but can you share with us the configuration of the tag and the digital state set?


          I tried this with a digital state set of just two states and writing 0 or 1 or the states itself works fine.

              Hi Andreas


              Configuration for Tag is


              Point name: BP1sd1mi_002_1


              Point Type: Digital


              Point Class: Classic


              Point Source: L


              Digital Set: Pulse (created maually)


              Digital set: Pulse


              Digital states


              0 : OFF


              1 : ON


              I have tried to load the data for 10days with 1second update

                  seems o.k.


                  My tag looks as follows:


                  @table pipoint


                  @mode list


                  @ostr tag, digitalset


                  @sele tag=test_tag_d






                  @table pids


                  @mode list


                  @istr set


                  @ostr state,...






                  and it works fine with 0, 1, 'Available' or 'Remove' for the value. If this does not work for you - you should follow up with techsupport@osisoft.com on this.

                      thanks Andreas,


                      It is showing the historaical data in ON/OFF state as per my text file.. What I observed that..after uploading the file and check the data..it display fine..but when I take the Live data on the same tag, my Histrorical data in archive editor start showing ????1 and live data displayed as ON/OFF depending on the value..


                      Any comment on that from your side..




                      One more issue I am facing is that, in case if I upload say 5 million data value for a particular tag (Float64, Classic, lab) with Commpressing OFF & Archive ON, the piconfig utlilty uploads all the values satisfactorily but I am not able to see all the points in Archive editor or OLE DB Tester (Select count (*) from piarchiv..picomp2 where tag = 'datatest'). It only display hardly 31000 values.. Is there any way I can see all the counts ???


                      Kindly let me know.
