but i don't how to connect plc to computer. i hope anyone whom can explain me how can i do that. sorry because my english is not very good

I used OPC instead. It was easier for me to connect to OMRON PLC that way.

Here is the link to the OPC Server for OMRON:

You will need to install it and then from the drop down menu, select OMRON PLC and you will have access to your data directly.

Hope this was helpful
