I tried to import tags from a file using Concept ver 2.1 ASCII File database type but it does not import tags with REAL data type. Is there any way I can import tag with REAL data types to Citect?

Concept ver 2.1 ASCII file defines its mapping in …\Citect\bin\Concept ver2_1.FMT and by default it supports the following mapping:

ImpMap1Rule1 = BOOL -> DIGITAL
ImpMap1Rule2 = INT -> INT
ImpMap1Rule3 = FLOAT -> REAL
ImpMap1Rule4 = DINT -> LONG

If importing variables with REAL data type from the file is required, you need to add a mapping to the list, for example,

ImpMap1Rule5 = REAL -> REAL

Concept ver 2.1 ASCII, REAL
