UFL Interface not reading data from CSV

Hello,

 

We are currently setting up a UFL Interface which would read the data from a CSV file.

1. The format of the csv file goes as below (Cannot put the actual nomenclature here due to client sensitive data and non-disclosure policy):

 

TAGTimestampElement1Element2Element3.......Element N

Unit1

15-Feb-2018 12:00:000.20.41.2.......1.5
Unit214-Jan-2018 12:00:001.50.80.8.......3.4
Unit313-Jan-2018 12:00:005.612.......4
..................................................
Unit M14-Jan-2018 12:00:0060.70.9.......9.2

 

2. To store the data in PI, we are using the StoreInPI() function which is reading the tag format as -

"ABC:"&<Unit name>&"_"&Element.

ABC - prefix format applied to all tags.

 

However, while executing the StoreInPI function, it is observed that the <Unit name> is not being picked up by the function and hence an error log of Undefined PI Point is generated. The Element name is being correctly picked up. We have tried removing the message filters applied / modifying them - however, no luck.

 

Could you please advise on this issue and suggest what things should be checked for ?

 

Please let me know if any further information is required in this regards.

 

Thanks and Best regards,

Rohit Shende
