Downloading from a project into the CPU
Using the two menu commands given below, in STEP 7 (TIA Portal) V11 you can download the complete project data into a module of your choice:
- "Online > Download to device"
Loads the compiled hardware and software project data into the selected device.
- "Online > Extended download to device..."
Establishes an online connection to the device selected and downloads the compiled hardware and software project data into the CPU.
Uploading from the CPU into a project
The table below explains how you can upload blocks from the CPU into the PG, for example, into a newly created project.
||In order to upload all the blocks in the CPU (OBs, FBs, FCs, DBs) and the global variables into your project, select the menu command "Online > Accessible Devices...".
||After the online connection has been established, in the "Accessible devices" dialog, you click the "Show" button. The accessible device with the "Program blocks" folder is then displayed in the project tree under "Online access".
The accessible device must be displayed and be accessible. If your programming device and the CPU are not connected via the Industrial Ethernet interface, the button described above is grayed out.
||Right-click on the "Program blocks" folder of the accessible device and select the "Copy" function in the pop-up menu.
||Then right-click the upper "Program blocks" folder of your new project and select "Paste" in the pop-up menu that opens.|
||In the dialog that opens you activate the "Continue" action to enable the "Upload from device" function.
Now you click the "Upload from device" button. The program blocks are then transferred into the new project.
