How to directly query Honeywell Process History Database from JMP?

Hello to you out there that also work in process plants that use Honeywell control systems and process data historian (Honeywell PHD)! Like me, you probably spend a lot of time analyzing process data. You probably use the PHD Excel Add-in to get the data into MSExcel and then export to JMP. Has anyone out there figured out how to directly query PHD from JMP and bypass Excel? I've seen this done with Aspen Process Explorer, but not Honeywell PHD.

Thanks!

Okay, I've been working on this problem in Excel. I've automated the data retrieval from PHD, formatted the data for export to JMP. I tried to Macro Record use of the JMP Add-in to Transfer Data Table to JMP, but Excel does not appear to record any of the JMP Add-in commands. Here is the recorded Macro:

Sub JMPPush()
'
' JMPPush Macro
'

'
    Sheets("Export to JMP").Select
    Range("B5").Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
End Sub

Does anyone know how to automate the JMP Add-in? Or must I code VBA as described in the JMP Automation Reference?

Thanks!

Hi Mark,

I wrote an addin to connect to OLEDB such as Proficy Historian.

Check it out.  This might help with what you need.

Best,

Awesome! I won’t be able to test it until after Memorial Day – running a global meeting next week. I will get back to you then.

I am presenting @ Discovery – will see you there.
