 Did you try with the macro I had attached the last day? I just put it in my profiles macro folder and it seems to work fine with that macro.

yes I updated with the macro you posted and it was still doing the same thing , but now that I think about it I have not rebooted since so maybe its just not loaded the new macro, I tend to leave the machine on for days at a time and just turn the servo amps off at night . wouldnt be the first time I have overlooked something basic

That shouldnt matter, just check that the one in your profiles folder is the latest, it has a date at the start of the VB  for some time in 2008.

Put the macro into test mode and have a look at the code it spits out.

You just need to edit the m1083 macro and change the line Test = False to Test = True, sure I mentioned it a few posts back.

Macros in Mach are VB scripts. Mach has the editor built in.

From the top line of the standard Mach screen:

Operator>VB Scipt Editor

I ran into a problem thinking I could explicitly pick up an external subroutine from wherever it was located, but Mach is adamant about where they are, so it might be a safe assumption that all of Mach is sensitive to placement of external references. So make sure you have your macros in the proper subdirectory (folder) and that there are not more that one version floating around with the same filename.
