How to add custom columns to Alarm & Event Logger Configuration
How do I add customized columns to an Alarm & Event Logger Configuration in 800xA?
I want each new line to start with some predefined (constant) characters which I can use to seperate events sent to an alarm printer.
I want to export the events to a database by grabbing the generic text data but have no good indication on when a new event is printed as they come in batches.

Search for an appx 2-3 yrs old bulletin on ABB Library / SolutionsBank. Title is something like "Event Attribute Extension may disturb alarm generation" etc
With EAD aspect you can easily add your constant to an alarm or event.
However; I sincerely recommend you to look up some OPC AE client sample code and implement your logger as an OPC AE client rather than a "printer sniffer".
