Connection to SmartClient Excel
I have recently started having problems with that I can not re-connect to the SC in excel when I open a previous document. The only thing that seems to work is when I subscribe to object.
Log subscription does not work, neither files where i specify period for logs.
The strange thing is that i san open files from few days ago and thety work, but not the ones i create today.
When I try to connect nothing happens.
Is it me having a bad day or bug in SC?
Thanks for a great forum!
What is the SC version and Excel Version used? (Share some screenshots)
To connect the SC with Excel - Excel Interface component to be installed.
Select Excel Interface from Start > All Programs > ABB Smart Client.
Select Manage Connection from Smart Client to connect the Smart Client Excel Interface to the Smart Client Server. This will subscribe to real time data.In the ManageConnection dialog specify the address of the Smart Client Server to be connected and click
OK to connect to the server.
Refer 2PAA107390-510_en_Smart_Client_for_800xA_5.1_Smart_Client_Excel_Interface.pdf for more details on connection.
There are some known limitations with the excel interface which also available in manual.
I located the problem, I think.
When I create a graph i excel and move it to its own sheet something happens and the connection is lost even though it shows that I am connected.
When I press "Manage Subscription" nothing happens.
