    Script correction after Migration

    Please Help me: I'm battling with HMI migration.

    How can I Change tag address to a full word address on Factory Talk as recommended by migration pdf guide. Below is the error:
    ( Tag es temp: Bit Array tags are not supported. Tag will be converted as a memory tag. )

    Also, how do I correct this error: ( Screen 2 Main: Message display object will be converted to Multistate Indicator object at (224, 88). )

    Good morning IdealDan,

    What version of FactoryTalk View Studio are you using? Also, what is the part number of the existing PanelView and new PanelView Plus?

    There are some easy ways to work around the Bit Array tags, and some versions of FTView which accidentally give warnings like this but import the tags without issue.

    But it all depends on your versions, etc.

    Background info here:

    If you check out the Message Display Object in PanelBuilder, and the new Multistate Indication in ViewStudio, you'll see they should display the same message based on the tag value, and if they do there's nothing to fix.

    Sincerely,
