Chapter 1 
Introduction 
FactoryTalk Historian ActiveView is a tool for viewing live and historical 
data from a variety of data sources. It presents displays of live data from 
the Historian Server as well as information from ODBC sources via ADO 
(ActiveData Objects) or VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Using 
Microsoft Internet Explorer you can view these displays with FactoryTalk 
Historian ActiveView on the Internet or within a corporate intranet. You 
can insert FactoryTalk Historian ActiveView displays as ActiveX controls 
in existing Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or other reporting tools used in 
your environment. 
The live data displays, called Display Documents, are prepared from 
displays built in FactoryTalk Historian ProcessBook.

File that determines what PI data is viewed and the format in which it is 
presented. 
When you open a Display Document in Internet Explorer, the display 
automatically updates with new data from the FactoryTalk Historian 
server. Dynamic symbols - such as trends, bars, or values - update just as 
they would in FactoryTalk Historian ProcessBook. Certain VBA scripting 
in a display is also available in FactoryTalk Historian ActiveView.
