Introduction
This document guide is composed by three parts, structured as follows:

A) Exporting and importing symbols from a CX-Programmer to a NB-Designer project:

  1. Exporting symbols from CX-Programmer
  2. Converting symbols from CX-Programmer .cxr to NB-Designer compatible .csv file
  3. Importing symbols in NB-Designer

B) Switching host PLC tags in a NB-Designer project:

  1. Exporting tag database from NB-Designer
  2. Converting NB-Designer tag database file
  3. Importing symbols in NB-Designer

C) Notes

In both cases a NB tag import tool is used (see attachment).
