RemoDNC is working beautifully except for one issue.
When the NC code is transferred, it looks like this on the machine:

X0.375Y2.T07(RND 0.187);
X37.625Y19.5; etc.

The machine wants to see this:

X0.375Y2.T07(RND 0.187);
X37.625Y19.5; etc.

It seems that the EOB (;) is stripped from the program number, and the program number is being merged with the actual program.
I don't even know if this is a Fanuc issue or a RemoDNC issue.
Our work-around is to add the EOB on the machine, but we'd like to avoid that.

Any ideas?

A few possibilities. But to save me explaining each one in detail can we do a quick test.

When you load the file into the RemoDNC program window it shows the program ready to be sent (before you click the 'send' button)

Does that show the program like this:- (you won't see commas, it should look just like this)

Thanks for the reply!

No, the program looks like this in the program window:


The O1001 is a program number that I enter on the Fanuc.
It is unrelated to the actual program name from the Cad/Cam (in this example 2700201.
So, on the punch I am on the PROGRAM EDIT screen.
I enter O1001, then push READ.
Then I press SEND on EasyDNC.
On the CNC screen I see this:

Etc Etc

I'm thinking the issue has to do with the Fanuc and how it wants to load a program.
The Fanuc manual says to do this:
(The program number is 4 digits max.)

Ok. Now I understand.

Most people have the program name/number as the first line of the program. Then at the fanuc all you need to do is Input/Read or "Read All".

But if the programs on your computer don't have any program number and you want to ;name' the file while reading into the CNC then just leave it as it is.

It is strange that your cnc doesn't put the O1001 on a separate line.

But the 'O' code is just like any other M code or G Code so can co-exist on a line with other codes.

So what happens if you just leave it as it is with the 'O' program number on the same line as the first XY moves?

Wow! If I leave it as is, the program runs normally.
I never knew you could do that!
We are good to go.

Thanks a million for your help.
