how to export tag list from 800xa into csv file?
I'd like to know all used tags in the 800xA.
Bulk Data Manager is available, but the licenze is limited.
Version 5.0, Service Pack 2, Rollout 4 is installed.
I opened Excel 2007 and attached via control structure to the MB300 network. But I don't know the next step...

Unfortunately there is no direct method of exporting a taglist from 800xA system.
But there are 3 crude methods to export the tags which are based on definition of what a tag is in 800xA system..
1) Use 'Find Tool' : choose advance filtering option and search for all aspects of aspect category "Faceplate" in structure "Control Structure". This will list you all the tags in 800xA System. but I donot think you can export this list to excel sheet.
2) Use customised BDM : Make a custom BDM template by dragging a faceplate aspect to an excel sheet. Then drag and drop your root object from control structure in this template to get the list of all tags in your system.
3) Use sysinfo: Open cmd prompt, type afwsysinfo -dump "filename" where "filename" is a text file located in local machine. This will dump all the objects and aspects from 800xA system to a file. Use this file to filter aspects with name "MainFaceplate" to get the list of tags.
