    Good Day,
    I have create a device to import some information form our database to Scada. The device is working good but the problem is, our order number are of String type. For exemple 297438-12R10S is an order number. But after reading the database, the input chanel in ASCII format display 297438-1 and not 297438-12R10S, I think the inputs chanels are designed for 64bits only. Is it possible to increase the size ? Or maybe create another format that support strings ?
    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Hello,

    1 input channel can contain only 8 Latin characters. You could split your order number into 2 strings and store it in 2 input channels.

    We will implement long strings in the next generation of the software.
