I'm trying to read stings ( batch name, decsriptions etc) from CIMPLICITY scada for ticket printing. But Ge 90-30 instruction does not have string commands like RS Logix. Could anyone help me on this for ge fanuc 90-30/90-70 PLC??

It's hard to tell from your post waht you're trying to do. Cimplicity can pass strings to and from the 90-30 as packed ACSII data. If you need to make a logic decision such as "Is the string equal to ABCD", you could do it with a double
precision EQ instruction. If you need additional characters, you could chain two or more EQ instructions in series.
