How to get the Datapoint-Type Name by the Type-ID?

If you want to know the name of a DP type and only the ID is known you can use the tool WCCOAtoolNameToId.

1.) Open a cmd-shell and go to the WinCCOA-Version/bin - directory
2.) Enter the following command: WCCOAtoolNameToId.exe -proj <your projectname> -t <Type ID>

Example: WCCOAtoolNameToId.exe -proj MYPROJECT -t 523

Details can be found within the WinCCOA-Documentation -> Special Functions -> Identification Caching & DP Identification
