Recipe Database vs. Recipe Database Editor

When you create a recipe
database in EBPro, the recipe data is actually stored in the EBPro project. You
can view and edit the recipe data by opening the Recipe Database (under the
Data/History menu) and clicking on the Data tab.

If you make changes to the
recipe database in the HMI, the changes are stored in the recipe.db file in the
HMI. You can upload the recipe.db file from the HMI using the Utility Manager
and view it using the Recipe Database Editor under the Tool menu in EBPro.

 Save this recipe.db file if you
want to archive the changes made in the HMI. If the project in the HMI gets
erased for some reason, you can restore the recipe.db by downloading it to the
HMI along with the project file using the Utility Manager.

Note that if you upload the
project file from the HMI after making changes to the recipe database in the
HMI, the uploaded file will still contain the original recipe data contained in
the project that was downloaded to the HMI. Any changes that are made in the
HMI are stored in the recipe.db file, not in the CXOB project file.

If you want to update the recipe
data in the EBPro project file with the changes that were made in the HMI, you
will have to do it manually by opening the Recipe Database in the EBPro project
and opening the uploaded recipe.db file in the Recipe Database Editor and
copying the changes from the Recipe Database Editor to the Recipe Database in
the project.
