problem with importing alarms to wincc flexible 2008


Thread Starter


Hallo friends,

I have just started to work on wincc flexible 2008 HMI. I wanted to write alarms in excel and than to import in wincc flexible. For understanding the basic of import and export alarm to wincc flexible. i simply wrote PT_alaram tag( Data type: word) with trigger address of db40 DW0 and array element 1. I exported the alarm list from old project, deleted old alarms and entered 16 alarms in excel sheet. when I imported alarms to wincc flexible, can see the 0 to 7 trigger bits with correct trigger address. The rest of bits 8 to 15 were shown with orange color and displayed error that 8 to 15 bits have invalid trigger address and no trigger tag.

where might be the problem? please help me out
