Daylight Saving Time Changeover
At the last changeover from summer to winter time (Fall 2003), inconsistencies occurred with WinCC V6.0 SP1 when displaying trends during the changeover period (1h). The data of the tags, however, is stored correctly in the archive. Since the proper display of historical data is of special interest - in particular for FDA customers - we would like to inform you that the display of the trends during the changeover period can be corrected with WinCC V6.0 SP2 - 2Q/2004.
These inconsistencies do not affect the changeover from winter to summer time (Spring 2004).
