  1. PE program changing configuration attributes.
  2. A setpoint changes value.


Any changes to a configuration attribute will cause the database in the controller to be marked as needing backup up to flash.

Find and modify any PE programs that change configuration attributes (i.e. description, format)  and/or setpoint values.
