(1) Conversion can be processed as a GX Developer function.
Conversion can be performed without closing the GX Developer because it is an
add-on function for the GX Developer.
(2) Data can be converted by file.
Conversions can be performed between commercial software (TEXT, CSV
format data) and the GX Developer (List or Device comments) at the file level.
(There is no need for copying and pasting.)
(3) Sequence programs can be created using commercial software.
When a program created using the TEXT,CSV format is converted to a List via
GX Converter, it may be used as an actual sequence program.
(4) Data can be created in any file format.
When creating a List or Device Comments using the TEXT,CSV format, the file
format can be created freely.

6. FILE FORMATS
This chapter explains the formats of TEXT, CSV format file, which can be used for GX
Converter conversion.
6.1 About TEXT CSV format files
(1) TEXT format files (delimited by spaces)
This is a file format in which data are separated by spaces.
(a) Necessary commercial software
Use a TEXT editor to create or edit List or Device comments.
(b) About the use of tabs
Do not use tabs in TEXT format files.
The GX Converter recognizes data which are separated by tabs as CSV
format data.
In the CSV format, a single tab is recognized as a delimiter, so caution is
necessary.
When reading data separated by tabs using GX Developer, perform
conversion by selecting " TEXT format" for "Set conversion source data."
(2) CSV format files (delimited by commas)
This is a file format in which data are separated by commas.
The GX Converter supports conversion of data separated by delimiters other
than commas.
(a) Necessary commercial software
List and Device comments can be created and edited using a spreadsheet.
Alternatively, a TEXT editor may be used.
(b) About commas within data
1) When spreadsheet software is used
Commas may be used within strings such as Statement and Comment.
2) When a TEXT editor is used
Insert double quotations before and after the string in which commas are
used, when import the string to GX Developer.
When the GX Developer export strings that include commas, it will insert
double quotations before and after the strings.
(c) About double quotations
The GX Converter recognizes and converts string data as shown below:
6-1

(Statement, Comment, etc.)

MELSOFT
CAUTION
About double quotations in CSV format
There may be some cases in which strings in CSV files created using GX Converter
are not correctly recognized or converted by some spreadsheet products available
on the market.
When this happens, perform necessary actions by referring to the manual of the
spreadsheet software.
Or, this problem can be resolved by opening the CSV file using a TEXT editor and
adding or removing double quotations as necessary.
POINT
(1) When the TEXT, CSV format file is being import by GX Developer
• Using the same file formats for import a TEXT, CSV format file using GX
Developer and export to TEXT, CSV format file will make the subsequent
operations easier.
• When creating a List using commercial software, the Step number need not
be input, since the GX Developer adds new Step number each time is r import
data.
(2) When export a List or Device comments to a TEXT, CSV format file
• The file format cannot be changed at this time.
Change the file format using a commercial software package after the data
export to the TEXT, CSV format file has been completed.

6.2 File formats when the GX Developer import a TEXT, CSV format file
This section explains the file formats used when the GX Developer import a TEXT,
CSV format file.
POINT
GX Converter recognizes up to 17 columns of data and will not recognize data in
the 18th column and beyond.
Therefore, when creating data using a TEXT editor or spreadsheet, create it using
17 columns or less.
GX Converter recognizes up to 524288 lines.
6.2.1 When a List is import by the GX Developer
The following explains how to describe each column data format.
Column data format
Step number
Description
(1) No description necessary
(Automatically added when performing conversion to GX Developer format.)
(1) Describe Statement strings only.
• Describe only the Statement; e.g. "Master Station Initialization setting".
A conversion error will occur if a semicolon (;) is inserted before a Statement string.
Describe a Line statement only.
Line statement
(2) Up to 64 characters can be used.
(3) When the CPU type of the GX Developer project is A Series, FX Series or Motion (SCPU)
• All descriptions become Separate statement.
A conversion error will occur if a " * " is inserted before a Statement string.
(4) When the CPU type of the GX Developer project is QnA Series
• Enter an " * " in front of a Statement string to make it a Separate statement; e.g. "Master
Station Initialization setting".
The " * " in front of strings that denotes a Separate statement is not counted as the number of
characters.
(5) If there is a mixture of Line statement, P/I statement and Note in the same line, a conversion
error will occur.

While GX Converter is
running
Description
Conversion cannot be performed during monitoring using GX Developer.
Conversion cannot be performed while GX Simulator is running in GX Developer.
Conversion cannot be performed when the GX Converter is running without any open project.
When the GX Developer import TEXT, CSV format data, there may be some cases in which
CPU type
Instruction and I/O (Device) cannot be converted, depending on the CPU type of the project
opened in GX Developer.
See "GX Developer Operating Manual" for details.
There is a limitation in data names when the PLC type of the GX Developer project is A Series,
Data name
FX Series, or Motion (SCPU).
See "GX Developer Operating Manual" for details.
When converting a List, the data type of the Instruction must be present within the conversion
data. Otherwise, conversion cannot be performed.
Column data format
When converting Device comments, the data type of the Device number must be present within
the conversion data. Otherwise, conversion cannot be performed.
In addition, describe Device number and either Comment or Label.
To save the conversion processing time, describe the Device number in ascending order within
the TEXT, CSV format data.
Device comments
Conversion is also possible when they are not in the ascending order. When Device numbers
are entered randomly, it takes longer to read Device comments compared to when they are
entered in ascending order.
APP
The input range for Start import at row and End import at row is 1 to 524288.

This section explains the operation to import the character-string data file that has
been converted via SW1IVD-CADIF, to the GX Developer.
(1) When converting a List
Convert a List using TEXT format while taking care of the following settings:
• Separate between the number column and Instruction column in "Set delimiter
location."
• In "Set column data," set the first column to "Do not Import (Skip)" and the
second column to "Instruction."
(2) When converting Device comments
Convert Device comments using CSV format while taking care of the following
settings:
• Decrease the End import at row by 1 using the spin button in the "Set
conversion source data."
• Set " ; " (semicolon) as the column delimiter in "Set delimiter location."
• In "Set column data," set the first column to "Device number" and the second
column to "Comment."
