8. DATA INPUT/OUTPUT
Offset data is loaded into the memory of the CNC from a floppy or NC
tape. The input format is the same as for offset value output. See section
III–8.5.2. When an offset value is loaded which has the same offset
number as an offset number already registered in the memory, the loaded
offset data replaces existing data.
