What does it mean if the Quality of my items is 'Bad, Out of service'?

The quality 'Bad, Out of service', indicates that:

  1. Either the group or item is not active. For example, in the MatrikonOPC Server for DDE this can indicate that the cell referenced in Microsoft Excel has no data in it.  Simply type a number in Excel and the quality will come good if the configuration is correct.
  2. The server is in a suspend state
  3. The block you are trying to access is either off scan or otherwise locked.
