I have realised that my CitectSCADA Pgdynobj.DBF file size is very large and have gone over 250 Mb. Is this supposed to be normal and if not what can be done to reduce the size.

In CitectSCADA, every graphics object that gets added to a graphics page, gets added to the Pgdynobj.DBF database when the page is saved.
However when you remove the object, the line of entry for that particular object in Pgdynobj.DBF sometimes do not get removed. Over time you may get a built up of the Pgdynobj.DBF to a very large size.

In order to reduce the size you can copy the PGDYNOBJ.DBF file from your C:\CitectSCADA\User\System or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Citect\CitectSCADA\User folder over the top of your offending PGDYNOBJ.DBF file to zero out the file.
In Graphics Builder, perform a update pages and in Project Editor, perform a full compile.
This should rebuild the information in your PGDYNOBJ.DBF file.
