Signal Source and Destination Arrows With PLC Spreadsheet I/O Utility

When using the Spreadsheet to PLC I/O Utility, I am unsuccessfully attempting to place source and destination arrows.  I am attempoting to place a source arrow and a destination arrow on the same line.  I can do this manually on the drawing with no problem.  However, when IU attempt to place a source and destination arrow on the same address line, using the spreadsheet, either the source or the destination wire connection drops out.

 

What can I do to add souce and destination arrows via the PLC spreadsheet

The drawing you sent out was blank.

 

Could you resend it so I can take a look at it?

Try these in the DxBLK field:

 

"HA1D3" - Destination arrow for input cards

"HA1S1" - Source arrow for output cards

 

You may also add the signal code in DxTAG fields to save time. Be sure to use a unique signal code for each arrow.

 

Don't forget to try RackLayout.com when creating the Excel sheet.
