I'm getting this error while trying to add a timer to an existing program. I tried using a timer that wasn't used in the program but i still got the same error. The version i'm using is 8.98C

Assuming you are talking about the highlighted rung and the coil element with the M1.

Timers start with a T??? and must be followed by K???? or a constant to define the preset value.

You have posted a pic right over what you have entered

Timers are coils and look like this. -------(T1 )K100

You then use done bits in your logic ----| T1 |---

I was trying to use M1 to activate the timer. I tried T2K100, actually everything i could think of and i got the same error. They're using some of the timers but not all.

Below the way i tried entering the values, and T1 is available because i used a search. Do i have to declare that i'm using this timer before i try to use it? i watched videos online and they just used it without doing anything. Is there a specific way i need to setup the program?

As previosuly stated, a timer instruction is a coil with the definition T2 K100.

I know i'm asking for help but i entered it correctly, i don't think you look at it. How else can i enter a coil? I'm not using the application instruction.

It called syntax, please put a space between T1 and the K100 and try again.

Ot type in T1 and then select the Edit button?
