To concatenate fields from the external database
into one field in the CitectSCADA database, add separate
entries to the
section. Each section needs to contain the name of a relevant
external column and the name of the destination column in
CitectSCADA. The entries needs to appear
in the order in which the fields are to be concatenated.
So, if the external data source has a field called "IOdev" containing the value "M", and another field called "IOaddr" containing the value "61", and you want to join them together so that the value "M61" is imported into the CitectSCADA "Addr" field, this is how it would be done:
Addr1= IOdev -> Addr
Addr2= IOaddr -> Addr
Here, you need to verify that there are no sections in the format file called [Addr1] or [Addr2], unless you need some filtering or conversion.
