  1. My wife tells me this from time to time, she'll be talking to someone about some not-to-common subject, next day there will be references to that subject on her phone. this I why I avoid all the "smart" things my phone can do... I text, take pics, use the calculator, oh and sometimes talk.... I avoid IoT also.... Also, not my joke..... My wife got her eyebrows painted on I told her they were too high she looked surprised
  2. I don't know, even though I grew up around a farming community, I was never keen on baling wire and duct tape repairs 🥴
  3. As I've mentioned somewhere here before, I've taken to the habit of drilling holes in the corners of the snap-in modules (I've made a little drilling template that lays over the module), and securing with screws. For a few years now, the creators have provided screw bosses on the PLC case, but they still don't put the holes in the modules? this doesn't prevent someone from bending a pin, but it sure keeps the snap-in module from falling off due to machine vibration....
  4. or maybe it's reverse logic and you are supposed to uncheck it if you don't want the prompt?? 🙃 Did you try that Joe?
  5. Or even the perception of what your own voice sounds like... I remember as a young man, just getting into music, recording myself on a tape recorder (yes, reel to reel 😏), and being so surprised what I sounded like (that's me?).... I did go on and play in a couple of bands in my youth, and one "soundman" we had really loved to over-use the delay. Yep, really hard to sing when your own voice is slapping back at you two words later... JohnR
  6. Well gee Joe, I was on your vendor list web page yesterday and missed this one completely..... Sometimes its easier to ask and have someone wave it under your nose than to do relentless research on the web 😌 JohnR
  7. Hey All, I have a little project where I want to monitor DC current in a panel where there is currently mechanical amp meters. I'm trying to find some sort of a DC current transducer 0-10Adc input (minimum), that will give me a 0-10Vdc output. A search of the web brought up little results, so I thought I'd ask the community if anyone has any suggestions... JohnR
  8. Very cool indeed..... I seem to remember seeing something like god mode in a Win7 forum years back, but I don't recall it being this simple to implement. Thanks, Aus Easter Bunny JohnR
  9. Define an array of MB's say, MB101 through MB132, these are the bit coils that your alarms will trigger. Use the Bit to Num FB (under vectors); A = the starting MB of your array, MB101 B = the DW where you want to store your "bit word", DW1 C = the length of you MB array, const 32 if MB104 is on, then the forth number of the DW will be 1 if MB128 is on, then the 28th number of the DW will be 1 and so on....
  10. Well, another couple of weeks of trial & error, and I'm still having this issue... I set up another computer with a fresh install of Win10 (thinking maybe something was amiss with the previous computer). DataXport ran for a day and a half before it popped up this same 3709 Runtime Error... And the error still pops up almost daily, getting pretty frustrating..... Anyone else have any ideas? JohnR
  11. Plus, with the Data Table method you can use the DataXport utility to copy the Data Table to an Excel file, saved into a folder or emailed to someone... JohnR
  12. AAAAHHHHRRRRGGGGGG!!!!!! Went a little over a week without an error, now suddenly I'm back to a couple times a day.... Win10 does not show any updates installed in the last two weeks.... Again I ask, am I the only one who is having this issue? Maybe I'll try a different computer, perhaps there is a ghost in this machine. JohnR
  13. Good news, I think.... Seems my computer received a big Windows Update late last week, and since then I have not had this error (mind you it had gotten to the point where it would pop up the error several times a day in the last week). And the problem seems to have started the last time I had a big update..... Time will tell.... JohnR
  14. Anyone out there in Creatorland have any suggestions? Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me? I am running ver 3.1.23 of DataXport which appears to be the latest, and it is the only app running on a fresh Windows 10 PC I've tried adjusting my schedules, and how many sites I read from, and I tried writing to the local PC where DataXport is running, all with the same inconsistent issue. JohnR
  15. this is what I'm thinking, it happened every now and then when I was using Win7 and Office 2010 (installed locally), but the issue started happening more often when I upgraded to Win10 and Office 365 (cloud based). I'm thinking that sometimes we are stepping on each other, that is, the end user program goes out and reads the Excel files 4 minutes after I start my read/write process and perhaps he is trying to open the newest Excel [NOT RESPONDING] file before I'm done writing it....😴 I changed the times on my schedule this morning to give a bigger gap between my write and his read, we'll see if that helps....
