I'm sure we've all done this at least once.
I have identical pumps A,B,C & D.
Pump D is the one I physically measured and want the data from but I accidentally measured and collected the data to pump A,
Is it possible in CSi MHM to move the data from A to D?

Nok, I did just that last week (save readings on machine D using machine A route). Yes, can be done with just a little bit of work.

  • What I did was create a new 'Area' in my database for separating out the data I want to transfer. 
  • Using Database Utility (DBUTLY), copy machine 'A' to this transfer area using the date/time filters (copy all points) to only copy the date/time period you want to move to the correct machine.
  • Rename machine/points/etc. in the transfer Area to the same name you want to copy the data to.
  • Once the setup in the data transfer Area is the same as the target, copy it back to the correct machine using the merge functions.

I used http://www.machineryanalysis.org/post/move-data-into-another-machine-8424977?pid=1294966628 as a guide.

When done, delete the transfer machine and area.

trapper, that’s a much better way of doing it than I’ve used in the past! Thanks!

The key really is.  To have the source IDENTICAL  to new destination in all respects.  And I mean IDENTICAL.  That is difficult to do in CSI.  Every point, every ap and every al set has to be the same.  I have managed it before but it takes a long time  normally.  Reminds me of a story.

One of my employees started DJ'ng late at night, and ofcourse became admired by lots of girls.  This has to be 20 years ago at least. He had to be present the following day (early) and collected all data in the wrong route.  So I spent hours getting it alll into the correct place.  I ended up having to say to him that I can no longer have him on a paper machine in the state a DJ is the following morning.  Simply did not want to go and see his mum and dad one day with bad news. He gracefully resigned.  Thank goodness.

In your instance Nok, you might be lucky.  If pumps abcd were created at the same time then it is likely A was created and copied as b c d.  That would mean they are identical and you would put a in another database, change name to d and dbutly it back. Should work.  It pays to standardise for this reason. Perfect a machne and copy after that.
