Never used a cimplicity but there's more than one type of notation.
Have you tried 4:XXXX

Good luck

There are multiple levels of conformance. The lowest level 0 requires only reads and writes of multiple registers, not I/O.
As suggested above you should stick to the 4x registers.

One should also realize that Yaskawa's addresing is 0-based, while a typical Modbus addressing is 1-based. So, if you want to access PLC's internal register MW1012, you would most likely have to configure it as 401013 (or 4:1013) in your HMI. Just do some experimenting.

There are HMI's on the market that can communicate with Yaskawa MP controllers via Ethernet using straight Yaskawa's addresing, e.g., Pro-face 3000 series. But if you have to do it with Cimplicity, you have to do it with Cimplicity...

And, BTW, I assume you did not forget to create a subroutine (what Yaskawa calls a "drawing") with MSG-RCV command as well as did not forget to configure a network connection accordingly. Just checking. This controller will not communicate with an HMI unless the correct "responder" code is running (it is a Japanese thing, I guess).
Don't trust, don't fear, don't beg...
