Data direct in 800XA File Name of ABBDataDirect.xla 800xA 220.127.116.11
We did Update from 5.1FP4 to Version 18.104.22.168.
First, Data Direct did not work at all. So we had to activate the Plugin in Excel as ServiceAccount User. But there was no ABBDataDirect.xla in the prefered Folder.
So we found:
Copied and renamed to:
C:\ProgramData\ABB\IM\DataDirect\Bin\ABBDataDirect.xla ("DataDirect\Bin" Path manual created).
Activate Plugin in Excel and Datadirect can work again. But there is a Warning:
Could not get Excel PID.
Maybe our copy & rename Solution is not the best idea. Does anyone have a better one?
I am not sure exactly what you are experiencing for a problem, however, when you are upgrading, especially when you move previously configured Excel workbooks from one PC to another, you MUST Update the Function Reverences. I have attached a document that brings you through this process.
