Hi everyone. I have a device with a few dataports that are currently set up as integer types. I have determined that I would prefer those dataports to be set up as floats in the future. I am assuming that I cannot not simply change the format of a dataport. Is that correct?
With that assumption, my current plan is to export the historical data from my integer dataports to a .csv, create a new float dataport in my device, then use Exoline to record my historical data to the new dataport. That way, I will have the historical integer values in my dataport, but I will be able to write float values moving forward.
Is this the best process or is there a more efficient method you can recommend to me? I plan to update each dataport one at a time. Are there any tricks I should use or any potential hazards I should avoid? I would appreciate any support or recommendations you can provide. Thanks.
