I see - that helps. So I also presume that you don’t have access to the original configuration database for the source data? If not, the only metadata for the points you have is in the “dbase.dat*” files.
Without the original source configuration and only access to the dbase files for metadata will mean that importing into openHistorian 2.0 (.d2 format) will not be so useful. As a result, you may need to use the openHistorian 1.0 tools to access the data.
If you already have the openHistorian 2.0 installed, click on the start menu and run the “Statistics Trending Tool” - this is basically the trending tool for 1.0 archives (i.e., those files that end in “.d”).
Once the tool is running click
File / Open archives.... On this screen go ahead and close the openHistorian statistics archive by clicking the button with the red
x that is next to the archive labeled
Next click the
Open button at the bottom left of the dialog and browse to the folder with your
.D files and associated
dbase.dat files - select an existing
.D file and then click `Finish’.
If everything goes well you will see the metadata for the data in question and you can now trend and export the data in CSV or COMTRADE formats.
