Thanks OptoMary for your feedback,
Unfortunately that was not the answer I was looking for.
I neither want to do a back-up nor, do I want to create an Archive.
I simply want to get the “[U][B]LATEST[/B][/U]” as in currently running strategy, [U][B]DIRECTLY[/B][/U] from the controller.
Archived file in the controller could be obsolete as this is an archive created by the programmer when in PacControl. If Online edits were done at a later time without a complete download, archived file in the controller at this point in time becomes useless. If the programmer forgets to create a new archive file after doing online edits, then there is no way to know what is actually programmed in the controller.
This to me, seems like a scary way to implement a control system. That is, if there is no way to get the latest running code from a controller.
Now to the dated “[B]DOWNLOAD[/B]” file that you mentioned. This is the file that I got from the customer.
[B]Q1[/B]. Does this file gets created in the controller when a strategy is downloaded in to the controller?
If it is, then after an [B]online edit and without a full download[/B], is the file in the controller updated
automatically at that time?
[B]Q2.[/B] Is this functionality (saving/retrieving a download file) available in SoftPac?
Thanks again for your help.
