Abstract

During downstream loading of a file from the load diskette of a controller to a workstation, the file number is indicated on a display screen, whereby a process situation of the setup operation can be grasped and a file having an error can be detected. There is a workstation whose control code is downstream loaded from the load diskette of a controller. The control code or data is divided and stored in plural files of the load diskette. The controller controls each file with a file number. As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the workstation indicates the file number request to the controller after power on at the Operator Information Area (OIA) on a display screen, whereby the file being fetched can be easily identified. If a file is destroyed, the operator can easily detect which file is destroyed.

File Number Indication During Downstream Load

During downstream loading of a file from the load diskette of a controller to a workstation, the file number is indicated on a display screen, whereby a process situation of the setup operation can be grasped and a file having an error can be detected. There is a workstation whose control code is downstream loaded from the load diskette of a controller. The control code or data is divided and stored in plural files of the load diskette. The controller controls each file with a file number. As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the workstation indicates the file number request to the controller after power on at the Operator Information Area (OIA) on a display screen, whereby the file being fetched can be easily identified. If a file is destroyed, the operator can easily detect which file is destroyed. Since the file number of the file being fetched varies from moment to moment, the operator can grasp the process situation of the current operation.
