MicroLogix 1100 Real Time clock

Hello everyone,
Does anyone know how to write into the RTC on a micro 1100? I would like to have the panelview+600 I am using to write its time into a bunch of intiger files then move those files into the RTC clock of the PLC. Getting the info from the PV+ into integer files is not a problem, but I could not find a way to mov data into the RTC function file.
In the parts of the lit I have it talks about reading and writing to the RTC but then there is a table that shows it read only.

I would like to have this feature so my customer can adjust the clock in the PLC without me.

I just think the ML PLC does not take the time to listen to me.....

thanks for the help,
stoop

I would go looking in the status file for something about the clock.

I'm pretty sure you can write to the RTC using the CPW instruction.

CPW #N7:0 #RTC:0.HR 1

Alaric,
looks like that did it. I have been stuck in mitsu world for the past few years and am not up to speed on some of the commands. Thanks for the help,
