Hi Jim

do while condition
  statements
loop

missing an "end if"

last "End" keyword if used at all should come after the main code and before the subs. i.e.

main code  statements
End

Subs

Me thinks maybe you're more used to C than this VB abomination :-)

StartRadius never used and PresRadius never initialized

Thanks Stirling - I was away yesterday, running the railway, and also thinking about it, and realised that I had not written the code correctly with while and wend, and if and end if and I wondered if that was where the fault lay. I telephoned my daughter who was also working on the same prog, and she sorted it - it works OK now.

Yes - Vis Basic is completely new - my last major brush with code was Pascal (some years ago) and recently some Microchip PIC chip programming for a signalling system.

The trouble is you are always playing catch-up. Still - Mach3 is first class, and has - and will - make a big difference to my engineering.

pleased you got it all sorted Jim. Yes VB/VB script - what can I say... it turned cat skinning into an art form ;D
