    You mean like using FTP? Filezilla is ideal but you can also use NetLinx Studio File Transfer.
    If you mean in some programmed automated way, be more specific on what you are trying to do...

    A client called me for an assistance. He wants to change the label/name of the buttons (for lighting control) on a touch panel. But the names/labels are on the CSV files. See below module part. I am new on this and I need some guidance. Thanks in advance

    For clarity, are you saying the only goal here is to alter the text on touch panel buttons that presently is based on the name of an internal variable corresponding to actual file names?

    Yes

    You can extract the file that needs to be edited through any FTP client - I use boring old Windows File Explorer more than anything else. Once the file is edited same applies for loading the file back to the master.

    If you use Filezilla there’s protocol config that needs to be made on their FTP client, DOS modes or something, I’m not at my PC know so I can’t look and see.

    If you only want to alter button text, this isn't about import/export at all. It's about understanding dynamic touch panel design and management, sending text to display on buttons.

    WinSCP is the best for all your file transfer needs. Just make sure to set the protocol to FTP when you connect to the netlinx master.
