I typically use the instance name of the datatype in the OPC Item path so that I can make many instances of the data type by using the multi-instance wizard:
However, this time my tags in the Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC are in an array, so the tag name has [#] in the name. “[” is an illegal character in the instance name, so I cannot use the instance name for the OPC item path. Does anybody know a clever way around this? I have >1000 instances of this datatype and do not want to create them manually.
