Please find the snapshot in which the yellow mark will be the variable i need to link in graphics as well as in edit paramets in action action.
If the data is available as a property in xA, you should be able to have Excel to pick it up with a regular ABBGetOPCDA() function call. If final format is date/time you may have to transfer it as string or integer and convert it into desired format with some type conversion functions in Excel.
Parameters are as far as I know static, like e.g REPORTMODE=weekly or REPORTMODE=daily.
Please read the Information Manager Data Access and Reports Guide for more info.
