I'm starting work on a conversion project from WonderWare/PLCs to DeltaV. While I'm excited about it, there are a few things that WW is doing that I'm not sure how to achieve in DeltaV.
The first item is a multi line free-text entry box on some graphics. At this facility, the operators make notes on-screen for each of their wells. This text box is connected to an SQL database; the graphic reads from it on open to display the text and writes to it at some point to save the altered text.
I need to do 2 things: 1) Locate a functional multi-line text entry box and 2) write VBA to connect and query an SQL (or MS Access would be acceptable) database.
In my mind, this is similar to the Alarm Help pop-up. I would copy from that, but Emerson wrote a custom app to handle that interface. I'm hoping it wasn't because Operate can't do this kind of thing natively.
Could DeltaV Logbooks be an answer?
