Equivalent to VAT in ControlBuilder M
Are there an equivalent to Siemens Variable Table (VAT), for online monitoring/forcing varibles, in CB Online?

God day Anders,
Their is nothing like VAT inside Control Builder.
Watch Window possibilities is available in Engineering Studio Function Designer and the Process Portal.
Just add the block you would like to have in Watch Window and subscribe for live values on the function diagram. All variables inside the block can be shown and updated with real time values.
Have a nice day.

I don't know for the same - it is different structure in CBM.
Going Online, you can look the list of variables (global for application and local for programs) and write to it. Forcing depends on if the variable is written in the program or not.
Also going in HW structure, you could force IO signals.
