The Database Exchange ActiveX control lets you connect to a data source (for example a database), and extract, display, and edit recipe values. The control is inserted and configured on a graphics page using the Citect Graphics Builder.
At runtime, the recipe values are displayed in a table. Each column of data can be associated with a CitectSCADA variable tag, enabling recipe values to be written to tags. Data can also be sorted, filtered, printed, edited, and written back to the data source using the Runtime User Interface.
