043247 - How to set default retrieval mode for ActiveFactory Trend?

Problem

Customer needs to change his retrieval mode for ActiveFactory, but doesn't want to go through every trend file. How can this be done?

Product Version: 9.2

OS: Win 2003

OS_SP: SP2

Solution

Now I just tested this with version 10.0 (Historian Client), but it should also work in 9.2.: a. Open Trend b. Close the active Trend c. Go to Tools>Options and set the retrieval style you want in here. d. Close Trend to save. e. Reopen trend, and open a saved file. It should now prompt you saying the retrieval style in the saved trend is different then the app�s default, and will ask if you want to change the default. If you hit no, it will update the trend to use the app�s default. So in this case your user will have to turn this on once for their install, and then once for each saved file. BUT, the nice thing is they'll only have to go through the menus to set the defualt the one time. Each trend file will prompt automatically.
