800xA Alarm and Event Reporting
I supposed to create daily reports for Alarms & Events in 800xA. I checked the configuration manual and found Alarm Logger but i think the system should include additional features. If so, which features do I need to install? Then, which steps should I follow for getting alarm & event reports?
I don't get much knowledge about 800xA and need some assistance about this issue.
I would be appreciated if anyone gives me some idea.

to propose the best solution you should tell us which "additional features" you want in your report.
If Alarm Logger is not enough, you can by programming in 800xA AIP (API for other softwares..), but it is pretty complicated.
About ten years ago we bought from ABB in Switzerland an application "Event Recorder" which stored all events in a text file, one file per day.
I don't know if they still sell it or not, but it looks like the person I had contact with has left the company.
If you have an Information Manager (IM) you can use SQL code to read events and add info to you own tables if you prefer that language.
The main solution is DataDirect. With most versions of 800xA this is supplied as part of the main system. It does require to be installed but is usually present on most systems. You will also need the Scheduler, which helps with templates and other components you'll need.
With DataDirect and Excel you create pretty much any report with any data. Check the attachment to get you started. For more information check your 800xA IM manuals.
