Another cause of the compile error documented in article Q2456 has been identified. 

The error can be caused by attempting to include comments in the Tag field of genies. The comment text started with '//' or '!', but the compiler is not programmed to recognise comment fields so it generated an 'Unknown DBA' error. After all of the comments are removed the compile error will not occur. If you wish to include comments in your genies, one suggestion is to use genie forms to indicate what a field is used for.

Citect has confirmed this to be a problem in all CitectHMI/SCADA versions up to and including v6.00 r1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
