Searching specific MDB modules for UnitBatches

Hi all,

 

I am trying to search for all UnitBatches within a particular level within the MDB. Looking at the "PI SDK Programming Reference" file available on vCampus, I see that there are a two different UnitBatch search methods available: PIModuleDB.PIUnitBatchSearch and PIModule.PIUnitBatchSearch. If I understand their descriptions correctly, the method I would want to use is the latter. However, when I tried using either of the below approaches to find UnitBatches below the test module I created ("ModuleTest") within my MDB, the resulting PIUnitBatchList appears to be empty.

 
Dim srv As Server
Dim ubl As PIUnitBatchList
Dim module As PIModule

...
    
Set srv = Servers("[machine name]")
If Not srv.Connected Then Exit Sub

...

Set module = srv.PIModuleDB.PIModules.Item("ModuleTest")
Set ubl = module.PIUnitBatchSearch("*-20y", "*", , , , , asy)

or 

Set ubl = srv.PIModuleDB.PIModules.Item("ModuleTest").PIUnitBatchSearch("*-20y", "*", , , , , asy)

 Appreciate any insights you can share :)

 

Thanks,
