    I posted this over in S.E.C. but thought I would post here also.
    Does anyone know of a utility to convert a Siemens S7-200 program over to a
    S7-300? Apparently there is some formatting or other differences between
    the two.

  2. S7 200 is completely different to S7 in every conceivable way and I know of
    no conversion. Sorry.

  4. Having said that S7 200 programs are usually so basic that any Siemens
    programmer could easily convert it line for line to S7

    That is the plan, but was just trying to save some time. We were going to
    use the existing S7-200 and just replace all the mechanical hardware on
    an automation project, however, since orders have increased, we do not
    now have the luxury of downtime to install all the new hardware, do the
    re-wiring and minor debugging. So we found an S7-300 and panel in the
    machine boneyard we are going to build up with the mechanicals and debug
    prior to installation in production. The downfall is that the program is
    already written for the S7-200 we were planning to use.
