How to upload point file to a NIKON total station

Hello, I use NIKON DTM 322 with on-board programs and data collector. I also use Land Desktop 2009 for my computation. When doing the download and upload, I use MSCAD-2009 using cable through COM1. The download is OK and I can download all my field work from total station to PC without any problem but when I try to do the upload, it keep giving me error "Check Data Line 1". I use the same format P,N,E,Z,D for both upload and download and don't know what is going on. Would someone please help me with this or have any idea about it? Your help/comment will be greatly appreciated.

    perhaps the answer might be inside this attached Manual for the DTM 322

    • Thank you very much for the message and a copy of the manual. However, it didn't say much about problem that might occur.
