Issue
How come Vijeo Designer does not link to bits from an INT or DINT using the RSLogix5000 L5K file?

Resolution
When using the Vijeo Designer Link Variable feature to link RSLogix5000 *.L5K file, you will only be able to import the tags that are declared and not the bit extraction of the tag.  
 
The work around would be to manually create those tags in Vijeo Designer.
 
To extract that bit, you will have to manually create the tags in Vijeo Designer as Program:MainProgram.tagname.x as the Device Address (where x is the bit location for a program scope tag).
