Create a Reference Values File
Copyright © 2019 EarthSoft, Inc • Modified: 18 Feb 2019
A Reference Value File (*.rvf, or RVF) is required for use with EDGE formats because EDGE is a stand-alone application and does not connect to an EQuIS database where Reference Values are stored. Reference Values allow the user to define the Look-Up values, Locations, and Analyte Groups used by EDGE on Field Devices.
This method requires that the EDGE Format be accessible from the machine on which EQuIS Professional is run (i.e., the workstation must access licenses for both EDGE and Professional).
1.Launch EQuIS Professional.
2.Connect to the database and facility where the Reference Values for the site are stored.
a.A previously used format may automatically load. To use a different format, click the Format button in the Open section of the Home tab.
4.Open the EDGE format (\EDGE\Formats\EDGE\EDGE.xse)
5.Click on the Reference Values tab, which is located in the lower-left, to view the Reference Values tables.
6.Select the Professional tab.
7.Click Reference Values (*.rvf) from the Package section of the top menu ribbon.
8.Enter the path and descriptive name when prompted.
Please refer to this article on how to use the RVF Builder Form.
