    Rslogix 5000 Go Online, Upload and Download

    Hi.
    I would like to clear few doubts.
    1. I would like to connect with the PLC, which should I choose between Go Online or Upload?

    2. The software is requesting me to select a file; once I uploaded the program to laptop after selecting the file name, does the file is automatically saved using the file name I select?

    3. Go Online - only view the program which is currently running. Upload - view and saved to laptop. Are these correct?

    4. If I have a separate copy of of.ACD file, I would like to transfer it to the PLC, I use download? Can it be done when the switch is at Rem Run?

    5. Force On and Force Off greyed out eventho Enable IO Forcing enabled.Whys is it like that.I knownonly physical IO can be forced.

    Appreciate your exper feedback.

    Good afternoon @gustav,


    - should I choose between Go Online or Upload?


    Depends on what you want to do?


    - The software is requesting me to select a file when I try to go online?


    Because comments and descriptions are stored in the offline file with RSLogix.


    - Can I download in Remote Run


    Yes, the software will ask permission to go to remote program mode first


    - I can't force anything


    Is your Compact in RUN (not remote run) mode?


    PS - I wold suggest you get some hands on time with a Logix PAC not installed and running equipement as you really need to be sure you understand these concepts (which I cover in detail in my courses.)


    Sincerely,
