I have upgraded my project from CitectSCADA v5.5 to v6.x and some of my Genies do not show the information in the Comment field. It looks as if the Comments did not get upgraded or have disappeared from my project.

If you are using the syntax %Comment% within your Genie then your Genie will upgrade with no problems. However, if the syntax used on your Genie was %COMMENT% then you will see that the information previously provided will not be upgraded. This is due to reserved words for Genie Substitution. You will need to go back to your CitectSCADA v5.5 project and make the changes to %Comment%. Then you may proceed with your upgrade to preserve the text.

Please see KB article Q3707 for a complete listing of Genie Substitution Reserved keywords.
