I have an external planning system that produces its information in an XML report. What are my options for utilising this data in CitectSCADA? 


The solution will depend on the complexity of the xml report and required data. Three options are:

1. In Cicode, you can open the xml file using the fileopen function, and search through the data based on certain syntax.

2. If the report has a consistent format, you may be able to go straight to a specific line to get the data, after opening the file as per 1.

3. CitectVBA.
