There is not software of this type however there are some things you can do with export/import files and VB, or excel and search/replace if you don't know VB, to help you in the process. But since you're upgrading rather than just translating the program, you should take advantage of the more advance features or the Logix platforms such as subroutines, multiple programs, user defined data types, arrays, additional languages besides ladder, tag based addressing, etc, etc.

Reply: I don't believe there's a way to transform that. You have to re-code the existing program unfortunately.

Not possible - I have written some macros that can convert the printed ladder to electornic - ie Print the report to a text file and I can convert from there. Sorry - chargeable. But stops the fat finger itus.

If I can help let me know
