  • PDF Report and report window Appending when I don't want it to

    I hope there is a simple solution for this. I tried searching the forum but found nothing related.

    Here is my scenario:
    The CMM operator runs the part and there are various errors. Some of them look like errors in programming. I take the PRG file offline to work on it and try to find my errors. Let's say there is a weird or backward vector that is causing the problem. I locate and fix the problem and then I execute from the bottom of my program (Ctrl-U) where the measurement ends and the analysis starts. Every time I do this my report just appends even though I have that option turned off. I begin with a report that is only 2 pages and end up with a ginormous report of 34 pages or more depending on how many times I execute. This happens with both the saved pdf report and the on screen report window.

    How do I prevent this??

    Are you using a print command?

      No I am not. I am using the File - Printing - Report Window Print Setup... and then the pdf option. But even if that is turned off the report window is still appending.

        Open the Settings Editor and search for an entry called "ClearExecutionListPriorToProgramExecution" and set the value to "1." Save then exit.

            No problem. I've seen this problem a few times over the years.
