Retrieving the serial number

I am using Met/Cal runtime 7. At the start of the running procedure I enter the serial number of the UUT. Then, during the main procedure, I read the programmed serial number from the UUT. I want to compare the two values to make sure they are the same. I use GETV [SERIALNO$] [i] to try to retrieve the user entered serial number, but the serial number returned is not the one I entered. What am I doing wrong?

I should add that the serial number retrieved with GETV is the one stored in variables.dat, but that serial number is not being updated by met/cal.

Thanks in advance

If your talking about the Serial Number stored in the database, you coud do the following to pull the information from the Inventory database.


  1.   MATH         MEM2=INV(UUT(),4206)
  2.   DISP         [MEM2]
