    File>Printing>Report Window Print Setup>

    The first indented tick box is "append".

    Untick it.

        How are you printing? Code in the report window? In that case there's a variable to clear past executions.

          Do you have a print command in your program?

          If you do , at the bottom of that command
          set
          PREVIOUS_RUNS=DELETE_INSTANCES

          B&S CHAMELEON/PCDMIS CAD++ V2011

          There are no bugs, only "UNDOCUMENTED ENHANCEMENTS!"

              Are you partial executing, or starting from cursor? If so, turn the business end of that hammer towards you.

                Are you sure about that? Did you try selecting the view last report icon instead of the view report in the report window?

                      Yes. You need to fully execute, otherwise it never wipes the previous report from memory and will keep adding to it.

                        that sucks so how do i run multiple parts after i locate the part with manual mode. i dont want to manually set up everytime. so i was doing man. the first time then scrolling down to "dcc" and exicuting from there for the rest of the parts.

                          Mark the features. Do you know how to mark and unmark sections of code? (Change them blue in the edit window.) Anything blue will not execute. So you can mark the manual stuff, and hit execute and do a full execution without running your manual alignment.

                          Or you can put a square on the CMM table, make an external alignment from it, corner parts in the square, and never manually align ever again.
