  6. I appreciate your step by step tutorial and pictures of the rslogix 5000. I didn't realize that the Tab/drop-down lists were available for viewing. My little sister has been wanting to learn this program for awhile. She may end up looking for a good training program. I'll have to let her know about the drop-down lists. https://controllogixtraining.com/rslogix-5000-training/
