Pencil ModSoft Tags from ProWorx 32

Is is possible to export tags out of ProWorx32 and import them into ModSoft? In particular, the symbols table and network comments.

I am not aware of any automatic (easy) way to do this. Maybe you could do it by exporting the information into a speadsheet and then manually adjusting it to be compatible with the Modsoft file structure.

Why would you want to do this? The last update to Modsoft was almost 6 years ago.

I am working with a conveyor system which was installed 4 years ago using ModSoft. There is about 7 miles of it here that most of it is tracking data which has an accuracy of +/- 3 inches. It's pretty impressive! We are recently going through some additions which is being done using ProWorx32 so the program tags are mix-matched. The software engineers I have used the ProWorx32 software and am less than thrilled with its speed and stability. It tends to lock up a lot and is extremely slow while performing searches. Schneider Automation has provided several patches for this but the improvements were minimal at best. Bottom line, ProWorx32 needs help while ModSoft just works and works extemely well and does everything we need it to do. At some point we will have to make the decision to go with one or the other software package as an overall system. If it is decided to convert all of the new tags back to ModSoft format, I,m just trying to get a head start on it. I would rather manually retype all of the tags and descriptors into ModSoft rather than to be forced to use ProWorx32, however, it is not my decision.

I an not sure about Prosworx32, but few years ago I wrote a small program to get tags from Proworx NXT to Modsoft

you can download it from MRPLC:

You have to export your tags to .FIL format
Hope it will help you
