Question Importing Tags from RSlogix5000 to factorytalk view ME

Hi everyone. I just got the new factorytalk view ME V5 software.
I exported the Rs logix5000 tags inti a CSV file. In factorytalk I tried to import but it must be in a .med format. Huh
Does anyone know how to get the tags into factorytalk view ME please?

No need to import the tags. Read the manual on direct referencing.
You can tell the object on the screen to look at the tag in the PLC direct.
You do not need to run a tag database in the Panelview.

If you want on the tool bar under tools there is a tag import/export tool.

Alan looks like that will only work if you are online, Thanks but the machine is 30min away getting built. Is there any other way.

If you tell it where your offline files (PLC logix file)are on your hard drive you can direct reference them, then when the real PLC is there the PV will automatically look at them instead of the offline file.

Look for this tech note application doc on the aB web site.
It will walk you through the entire setup.

Alan is right.
The ACD file MUST be on your local machine not a network drive, etc.

Not sure I remember but I think .L5X extension is for Transaction manager.

Smoke I don't think you understand the problem mate. Maybe you haven't read the whole forum.
