Sorry for the false alarm guys, I figured out what was causing the problem, it's a piece of code that times how long for a particular axis movement.
see here.... http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/forum/index.php?topic=2951.0
I'll talk to poppabear about it, see if he can let me know what's happening.
I'll remove the code that was giving me grief and retry this script.

Well I tried to get this routine to work, but it keeps giving me a syntax error,so obviously I haven't entered it in correctly, if possible could you guys have a look at it and let me know where I'm going wrong? Thanks

‘This is the code from one of my buttons
Sub Main()
If (GetUserLED (1100)= true) Then  ‘Can I use the light for the Referenced Y axis (808)
CODE "G90 G54"
CODE "G00 Y1.0"
CODE "M03"
CODE "G01 Y20.0 F70"
CODE "G90 G00 Y5.0"
CODE "M05"
CODE "M30"
Exit Sub
End If
Main



‘This is the code in my Macropump.m1s
If GetLed (808)=1 Then 'Std Y axis home LED
DoOEMButton (251) 'Stop Jog Y
CODE "(HOME MACHINE BEFORE USE)"

Else
DoOEMButton (291) 'Allow  Jog Y
CODE "(Ready to go)"

End If

End Sub

Try it like this

If GetLED (808)= 1 Then
  CODE "G90 G54"
  CODE "G00 Y1.0"
  CODE "M03"
  CODE "G01 Y20.0 F70"
  CODE "G90 G00 Y5.0"
  CODE "M05"
  CODE "M30"
  While IsMoving()
  Wend
End If
