UpdateValue from a VBS script

I am wondering if anyone can help me with the updatevalue function when used in a VBS script (.vbs file)


I can get this working in VBA no problem but think there must be something simple I am missing in VBS....forgive the messy code this is just me trying to get it to work. I have tried just passing text and a 0 to the updatevalue function, no joy,  and then defining a PIValue object and PITimestamp. I always get a "Type Mismatch" error. Anyone have any ideas? The reason for doing this in vbs is to keep things as simple and portable as possible....



Dim ptmTimestamp
DIM pvValueToAdd
Dim ptPIPoint

Dim mySDK
Dim myServer

Set mySDK = CreateObject("PISDK.PISDK")

Set myServer = mySDK.Servers("PISRV001")

myValue = "Normal"

myTag = "testTag.DIG"

SET ptmTimestamp = CreateObject("PITimeServer.PITimeFormat")
SET pvValueToAdd = CreateObject("PISDK.PIValue")

SET ptPIPoint = myServer.PIPoints(myTag)

ptmTimestamp.InputString = "*"

Set pvValueToAdd.TimeStamp = ptmTimestamp
pvValueToAdd.Value = myValue


ptPIPoint.Data.UpdateValue pvValueToAdd,0


SET ptPIPoint = Nothing

Set myServer = Nothing 

Set mySDK = Nothing
