If you are actually wanting to have records of the process, Joe's method of using a Data Table makes it easy as you can write the Table onto an SD as necessary. Strings are easily read in *.UDTs, and easily shifted out of the plc using SD Card Explorer. Alternatively you can do a direct read of a table using the Connection tab under Data Tables/Data Tables in Visilogic.
Thanks Joe, I do appreciate the response. I've already got a fair amount of code written with the Load Indirect, I'll probably see if I can make this work.
With allot of this stuff ( PLC work in general ) I have an idea of what I need the outcome to be but I dont know what tools within the software to select to make it happen.
Will post back either way.
Thanks for reply. I was not involved in choosing platform, my directors were, but V700 seems fine to handle our task.
Probably in future they'll make a decision to change to UniStream. I haven't download UniLogic yet, because i'm not familiar with ladder logic at all and haven't got almost any experience in it, but i'll probably download it later and check this program product also just for myself.
