How do I get trend information into dBase Format? 

Citect does not write trending information directly in the dBase format, as this would not provide the required performance in logging or displaying the history data. To get trending data into dBASE format, you should get Citect to create the normal trending files. Define a dBase device in the Device form with the fields {TIME} {DATA}. Then extract the data you require from the trend files using the function TrnGetTable() and write into a dBase Device using the DevAppend() function.

Once the trend data is in dBase format, the trending data can be used in databases, spreadsheet and any other program that supports the dBase format.
