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 "LATEST" as in currently running strategy, DIRECTLY 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 "DOWNLOAD" file that you mentioned. This is the file that I got from the customer.
Q1. 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?
Q2. Is this functionality (saving/retrieving a download file) available in SoftPac?
Thanks again for your help.
