You might try the maintanance tab under operator.

Personally I use a log system. Each job that mach runs it logs the file name, date , start and finsih times. At the end of the month that file gets appended to the master log file.

Everything but spindle on hours. I gues Brian never turned it on in the base code.

Hmmmm - ok - but when I tried it, after a complete reset it gave me an A axis distance of several hundred - even though I don't have an A axis - nor was there any A movements in the code. It also gave me a session time of several hours even though I only ran a two minute job. And it also told me there were a couple hundred M3's even though there were only actually two - other than that I guess it was fine  ;D

Ian I just retested here AND it all works OK except for spindle on hours. I remember Brians saying a while back he thought he did not turn that function on in the base code.
