What should I be aware of when migrating from the ABLOGIX driver to the ABCLX driver?  

1) The relevant board setting needs to be changed to ABCLX. The port form no longer uses –i and you need to specify the IP address followed by / followed by CPU slot. Please refer to the ABCLX driver help

2) Array offset no longer use {} (curly brackets) but use / (forward slash).
For example in ABLOGIX you would use TAG1{0}!A[64].
In ABCLX this need to be changed to TAG1/0!A[64]

3) Use of “.” to access bits in words in the Variable Tag address, needs to be replaced with “/” .

4) Tags that exist in CitectSCADA but do not exist in the PLC used to be fine in the ABLOGIX driver, however this will cause bad tags in the ABCLX driver and they need to be removed. Please follow KB Q4253 to remove the bad tags.

5) Make sure the variable.dbf is sorted according to KB Q4189
