    I think that the better, more general improvement would be for the pages to be "responsive" (i.e. adjust according to the window size) and take advantage of the full screen space.

    Can someone from OSIsoft please decline this idea? The UOM database exists as tables in PI OLEDB Enterprise's successor: PI SQL Client.

    From this item description it looks like the major pain point with existing RDBMS interface is providing configuration information (to the tags and interface). I would like to understand more if the request behind the connector is to solely minimize providing configuration information to the existing interface and tags?

    Kenneth Barber commented  · 

    In response to Abbas, the request is not solely for the purpose of minimizing the entry of configuration information. OSIsoft is moving away from PI Interfaces and towards PI Connectors, so it would make sense to make a PI Connector based on one of the most used PI Interfaces. As I demonstrated in my original post, this is also OSIsoft's chance to redesign and improve how RDBMS data gets into PI.

    A PI Connector for RDBMS would give us the usual benefits of PI Connectors: remote configuration, configuration in a resizable window, self-buffering, higher performance, and increased security.

    A PI Connector for RDBMS would also help quicken the deaths of the PI Buffer Subsystem, PI ICU, and the PI Module Database, which is still used to store the PI ICU information of PI Interfaces. Those are 3 less things for PI administrators to worry about.

    First of all, UserVoice is for suggestions, not questions. Second of all, you didn't even make your post under PI DataLink.

    Your spreadsheet is poorly designed. You can have a single file with a single sheet where you choose the day rather than having the scattered across multiple sheets and files. However, if you insist on keeping daily sheets within monthly files, I would recommend creating a Power Query table in a separate sheet that grabs the entire month of data using PI SQL Client, which in turn requires that "PI SQL Data Access Server (RTQP Engine)" be installed on the PI Asset Framework server. In the daily sheets, use INDEX(,MATCH(,,0)) to look up the data from the Power Query table. PI SQL Client is much faster at grabbing large amounts of data than PI DataLink, so you won't have to worry about the speed of grabbing an entire month of data on each refresh.

    To update the spreadsheet automatically, you need to automate Excel. You can use a PowerShell script run by the Task Scheduler. The PowerShell script should open your workbook in Excel, run a macro, save the workbook, and close Excel.

    What you are suggesting is a change log.
