Tag Converter
Using the "Tag Converter" tool, you convert the tags from STEP 7 into a format that is suitable for importing into WinCC flexible (-> *.csv format).
Entry ID 22060779 contains the "Tag Converter" tool.
A detailed description of how to proceed is given with the tool.

Symbolic tag connection
If you have integrated WinCC flexible in STEP 7, after importing you can run an automatic symbolic connection of the tags.

  1. For this you mark the newly imported tags and right-click to open the pop-menu.
  2. In the pop-up menu you select the item "New connection...".
  3. In the menu window you select the option as shown in Fig. 01 and acknowledge the entries with OK. The symbolic tag connection is then made.
