Delete tags in Generic OPC Object:Property Info with Bulk data manager
After using a OPC upload , I want to delete a lot of tags in "Generic OPC Object" - "Property info" see pic 1.
How can I do that using Bulk data manager?`
I've tried to insert the object in Excel but can't delete the tags see Pic 2.

This is not possible with BDM.
The Advanced upload might be a work around given that all involved engineers are made aware of this (since performing a normal upload would return all attributes again).
With Advanced upload a user can intervene and edit the .ocs file before it is appended to the system (which actually creates/deletes objects in System 800xA).
There exist no official documentation of the format of the .ocs file, however, the content of the .ocs file is not "rocket science" and it should not be impossble for an "average engineer" to find out how to remove objects and/or properties.
Please note that the manual adjustments made must be repeated each time a new "retrieve" has been performed (unless the previous result has been saved somewhere).
