SS to PLC Generator

How do you distinguish from an AB1794-IA16 TBN from an AB1794-IA16 TB3 when inserting in the spreadsheet in the generator ? We keep getting the TBN module no matter what we enter in the spreadsheet.

Randy In the PLC.dat files, are both parts listed as just MFG=AB and CAT=1794-IA16? So, are there two cards with identical MFG and CAT entries? -- Regards, Jared Bunch Technical Support Specialist Autodesk, Inc "randy" wrote in message news:17006321.1075756242745.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum1... > How do you distinguish from an AB1794-IA16 TBN from an AB1794-IA16 TB3 when inserting in the spreadsheet in the generator ?

Is there a way to get a listing of module numbers to enter into a spreadsheet so that Autocad's generator knows what we are looking for ?

Randy What I was getting at was that if you have multiple entries with the same MFG and CAT, the SS to PLC function is going to take the first entry for that card that it comes to. In order to call the "TBN" one compared to the "TB3", you could make those catalog entries unique by adding those specifics to the end of the catalog number. The SS to PLC function will only insert cards that exist. When the command is first accessed and you select the spreadsheet to use, it runs through and processes the information on that spreadsheet. At that time, it alerts you as to whether there are any cards called on the spreadsheet that are not found in the program. The PLC cards are defined in a various text documents *.dat. If you had a method to search these files and pull out the lines that begin with \K= and \M= , this could generate a list of all the available cards. The other option is just examining the manual insert in order to see if the cards you need are there. At this point, there is not a list of all the PLC cards that are included with the program. A list like that isn't a bad idea though!! I hope this helps!
