    HI! Can I write into Total tag of a totalizer? I downloaded a program with a few changes to clx and then all my totalizer tot values are changed from what they were previously. Thank you very much in advance!

    Good morning Saken,

    I think the easiest way to set the Totalizer output to a value would be to reset it to a preset value - below is from the help file:

    - When OperResetReq transitions to true while ProgOper is false, the following happens:
    - - OldTotal = Total
    - - Total = ResetValue

    Hope this helps,

    Very interesting, currently I'm moving daily gallons added into an array and then adding each array for a total gallons added per month. The TOT seems like a easier way of accomplishing this ? Thoughts? I need more info...

    Hey @Righterjr,

    I have to agree - you'll likely find the TOT a much simpler solution for your next project,
