A migration tool to migrate PI ProcessBook displays to native PI Vision displays is currently in development for the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019. This will also include functionality to analyze your ProcessBook displays ahead of the migration to determine which displays are using features like VBA that will not be supported in PI Vision.

    Is there an update on when we will be able to convert Processbook Screens to PI Vision screens?
     
    TIA!

    Hi,
     
    I am currently able to open processbook display files in VISION.
     
    However, it is not displaying the SQC charts.
     
    May i know if SQC charts are compatible in VISION? If not, is there a plan to make it compatible?
     
    Thanks,
    Dallan

    Unfortunately it's impossible to translate VBA into something a web browser will allow you to do.  PI Vision does have it's own extensibility model, but it is based on web development (JavaScript).

    Please enhance the PI Vision tool to work VBA functionality in it. It will be easy to work at one place rather working at both the places PI Processbook and PI Vision.

    It turns out that we are working on that right now!  I don't want to steal the thunder from marketing by providing details, but it just so happens I spend most of my time working on making the transition between ProcessBook and PI Vision as painless as possible.
     
    Thanks,

    A lot of customers have hundreds or even thousands of processbook displays. they won't switch to PI Vision if we don't provide such a tool. It's about the time as PI Vision's getting better.
