Function Block applications made in TAC Menta may not import into StruxureWare Building Operation

Function Block applications made in TAC Menta may not import into StruxureWare Building Operation

Issue

When importing a file from TAC Menta into StruxureWare Building Operation Functional Block Editor, the import of the application file fails.

Environment

TAC Vista
TAC Xenta
StruxureWare Building Operation

Cause

The following characters are not allowed in object names in StruxureWare Building Operation.
• /
• "
• ?
• *
• ~
• White space is not allowed in the beginning or the end of an objects name.
• . (period) is not allowed in the beginning of an objects name.

Colon (:) is not allowed either, but will automatically be replace by an underscore (_) when importing
 

In TAC Vista, signal names could contain the character "/". In SmartStruxure, this character is not allowed.

Resolution

Remove illegal characters from object names in the Function Block program.
