Programming Check

I will be receiving my new Apex tomorrow.
Attached is an excel file with the programming I
came up with.
I would appreciate a check of the commands.

The first Tab labeled IO Table is where I'm defining
the Outlet and Input naming to be used in the Apex.

The second Tab labeled Program is the code for
each Real Outlet and Virtual Outlet.

My greatest concern is the Dosing Pumps and the
Top Off pump.

The column labeled Action is a brief description of
how I want it to work.

Thanks for the Help.
Frank

Can you paste in the program itself; I think with all the virus' and such people are sensative to opening files.

Oops, nevermind. I see that you can scroll down in the window.

One more edit: You may want to add some "Min Time" statements to the pumps. I am adding some to mine now.
