I've circled the button used to insert a branch into the logic:

Each tab ("User", "Bit", "Timer/Counter",etc.) has more instructions. Use the arrow buttons next to the tabs to scroll through the tabs. Use the arrow buttons next to the instruction icons to scroll through the icons in that tab.

If that toolbar isn't visible, go to the "View" menu and make sure "Tabbed Instruction Bar" is checked.

If you're not sure what each instruction is, hover your mouse over it and you'll get a tooltip identifying it. To see detailed help, add it to the rung, select it, and hit "F1". The instruction help in RSLogix is actually very solid.

@Joe E. gave you the simplest answer, but there is also another "old school" method to get what you want.

Start by Double Clicking the mouse on a rung number and opening the mnemonic editing of that rung.

Then type the mnemonics for what you want, in your case BST OTE NXB OTE BND.

And when you press return you get the graphic of the mnemonics.

That's probably one of my favorite things about RSLogix (5, 500, 5000)! When "in the groove", I can type in an entire (pretty complicated) rung WAY faster than drag-drop.

@Joe E. --  Once an Assembly Language Guy always an AL Guy . ROFL.

@Kevin8686  - For your enlightenment -- BST = Branch Start ; OTE = Output ; NXB = Next Branch ; BND = Branch End  -- tons of others can be found in the instruction help.

Dear Mr. Joe, 
Thanks a million times for your great support, I know it's something technically small but to me it's really big issue & i'm sorry for my late thanking as i was in my second med-term exams. Thanks again.
