Importing variables with Location?
I am using Freelance 2016 SP1 [10.3.9142]. I am trying to import Variables with the associated "Location" attached to it. When I Export out of Freelance Engineering, the associated CSV file have the following columns populated. Name/Comment/Type/Res./X/Object/Location/P. When I then delete those variables inside the Variables(For test purposes), and take that same .csv file for import, the Location column is blank.
So, if I create an new .csv file with all my variables (8000 in total), the Location is not imported. This forces me to go and do each one manually. 8000 variables is gonna take some time, don't you agree?
I contacted our local ABB specialists and they confirmed it does the same on their side, but have no solution for this "bug". They did suggest I use the Bulk Data Manager, but this also turned out to be a waste. Bulk Data Manager does not export the Location with Variables.
Please would someone help me do bulk importing of data. I can not believe it is not possible in ABB Freelance. This is a simple task in Siemens and Rockwell. There must be a way. What am I doing wrong?
