Use this dialog for Exporting tags to an external database. The Export Variable Tags dialog has the following fields:
A reference (128 characters max.) to the external data source to which your variable tags are exported. This can be:
Note: This data source needs to exist before the export can be performed.
The format of the data referenced by the external data source.
Enter a connection string to provide connection details for the data source. This is similar to an ODBC connection string. For example:
UserID = XXX; Password = YYY
Not every data source requires a connection string.
The I/O Device for which you are exporting tags. Use the menu to select an I/O Device that has been defined using CitectSCADA.
Remove prefix from tags
Select this box to remove a known prefix from the front of the exported tag names.
The prefix (8 characters max.) to be removed from exported tag names.
Delete existing tags
Select this box to delete any tags in the external database before exporting.
Note: For the Unity driver existing tags are not deleted, even if you select this check box.
