VBA Sample - DLG ROI Example to capture PLC timestamped data

RSView's datalog sub-system will time stamp all data logged. When the PLC needs to time stamp the data because
the process is time critical, this application example can be consulted as a starting point. In this example 2 datalog
models are created. The first model is to capture the PLC timestamped data via a DataLogSnapShot
command. Some trigger mechanism between the HMI and PLC needs to be developed to generate the
snapshot. When that snapshot is complete, the PLC ladder logic should reinitialize the data table. The second
model used in this example is hard coded to reduce the number of parameters passed into the VBA sub-routine. The
second model is called TrendData; it is of type wide, and contains 1 tag called TrendData\Word1. Because the PLC
is timestamping the data, the second model should NEVER be started. Starting the datalog model will create a B
record (for begin) with the current time stamp, and prevent any earlier PLC timestamped data from being saved.

PLC Data description:
The PLC5 ladder logic is structured so that 10 tag values comprise one PLC timestamped data record. The data is
layed out in 10 word groupings in an integer file as follows. Because the PLC5 is limited to 1000 element tables,
this example stops at that point. The CL5550 could be used to go beyond that limit. When traversing the datalog
collection, the tag's units are checked to determine how to process the record. The tag units are used to determine
what the record type is because the tagname must be unique for each record in the narrow model.

PLC Data table offset Description PLC status register RSView Tag units value
N9:0 Month S:19 Month
N9:1 Day S:20 Day
N9:2 Year S:18 Year
N9:3 Hour S:21 Hour
N9:4 Minute S:22 Minute
N9:5 Second S:23 Second
N9:6 Millisecond T4:0.ACC Millisecond
N9:7 Value N9:7 Value
N9:8 OPEN N9:8 (value not used) ""
N9:9 END N9:9 (value not used) End
