Why am I getting a "Syntax Error" when I attempt to compile a main project in Powerlogic Scada?
Powerlogic Scada v7.10, PowerScada v7.20,7.30 and 8.0
Syntax Error is usually associated with a Tag Name Syntax. PowerLogic SCADA tags (variable tags, alarm tags and trend tags) need to have the following syntax:
[ | '_'] *[ | | '\' | '_']
That is, the tag name needs to begin with either an alpha character (A-Z or a-z) or the underscore character (_). Any following characters needs to be either alpha (A-Z or a-z), digit (0-9), backslash (\)or underscore characters(_). The use of any other characters will result in a compiler error.
Ensure that tag names follow the approved format.
For example, '_MyTag123' and 'my\New\Tag' are both valid tag names, whereas '\NewTag\' is invalid.
Tag names that begin with a numeric character, such as '12TagName', are only valid if the INI parameter [General]TagStartDigit is set to 1 (the default value is zero).
