64 bit integer value in PI

Hello All,

We have a requirement to perform a calculation in PI for determining the status for 10 different attributes. The calculation is expected to give results as Good, Bad, Out of range depending on the value for input attributes.


The idea was to create a 64 bit integer output tag that would be used to store the status from the calculation.

Eg: bit0-Good, bit1-Bad, bit2-Out of range for the first input attribute,

then bit3, bit4 and bit5 for the second input attribute and so on.


I would like to know if this can be achieved in PI. Also I noticed that the int64 data type is not available in PI while it is present in AF.


We are trying to use a single PI tag to store the output, thereby reducing the number of output tags created. However am not sure if this is feasible.

Any help/suggestions with regards to the approach would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.
