We are nearing a shutdown and we will upgrade to 13.3.1 during the outage and before this takes place I would like to take care of all of the necessary uploads that relate to controller tuning. Can someone give me an idea of how to do this in an easier manner than going module to module? If it makes any difference, we do not have Excel installed.

You can also check the powerup folders on the ProPlus. All online changes are stored there. This is useful if you want to analyise changes before upload. This can allow you to plan what you will upload before running Adrian's correct suggestion above. The files are stored in flat text file. The behaviour of the system is that if you cancel the upload the powerup folders are left as is. If you do upload and select nothing then the powerup folders for online changes for the associated modules are purged. The only real way to check is to use opc usually with excel. You can pull data from the live system via opc. Then use userdefined export to generate the system settings. A simple compare of the two will identify all differences. It is not necessary to use excel, any opc client can get this data.
We had this suitation on a previous project and wrote a simple vb routine in the graphics interface to export all the tuning values to a text file. A user defined export gave us a list of modules and then we parsed this to send all this data out. Then this can be compared against the offline database.
