Read about DataDirect in the IM Data Access and Reports Users Guide. DataDirect is part of the standard feature set in 800xA, no separate license required. DataDirect contain functions to read real time OPC data, alarm & event and trends.
Eg a data call for online value =ABBGetOPCDA("TC101:Control Connection:VALUE")
Scheduler (also part of standard) can execute report on timer basis and output to file, printer, etc.
Basic History (also part of standard) can log properties that can be read by DataDirect. Half of the job is to make a good data store from which report can read input, counter values, integrated values, ranges, statistical functions, etc is possible.
