Import succeeded but not showing functional diagram in 800xa?
I am trying to retrieve an old program built in functional diagrams. I have Full system backup (Node Backup).
using functional structure afw file I am importing a particular functional diagram, import export runs successfully but
functional diagram is not showing up in my application.
I am working on plant and it has 2 servers and several nodes.

Ensure you are importing not just the structure backup files but also all of the related Aspects. These are in different Afw files and can be quite widely spread.
This can quite quickly become very complicated if the information you need is spread over several objects and many aspects. For this reason, it may be better to make an offline copy of your Aspect Server ( with the correct software options installed on it), Delete the System from it, and then run a Full Restore. You can then find the data you really need, and make a manual export. You should only need a copy of the primary Aspect Server to do this.
If you don't already have a Virtualized system, then VMWare Convertor and VMWare workstation can do this for you pretty quickly - and usually much faster than trying to figure out all the correct software options and building an aspect server from scratch.
