Bulk Editing when using FBD in 800xa System with control builder
HI i am using PM891 Redundant proecessor in 800XA System. i am planing to develop my logic using FBD, but i will also require to bulk edit my logic using excel on later stage. kindly guide if it is possible if i can bulk edit when using FBD??
The P&P tool simply sets property values in the running code. It does the same job as BDM ( Bulk Data Manager in Excel) but it is adapted for the Pulp & Paper Objects to make things a little easier for that library.
If you want to modify values of variables in the code then Yes - BDM will do this.
If "Bulk Editing" means you want to actually modify the FBD program than No - It is not possible. Writing or editing program code can be done using the Control Builder Open Interface. But really this works for adding variables, programs, Control Modules Etc. For ~technical~ reasons writing FBD code really isn't possible. (It is possible to copy code and to create some limited FBD programming but it's messy and not so easy to work with). We've done some work with bulk code building for new projects, but the biggest limitation is that you cannot go back later and edit code with the bulk builder - the CB Open Interface definition of how FBD programs are written isnt flexible enough.
