If you delete the code in red , the program will execute 3 times and stop. I need to advance X by .063 thou and have the X readout show the advance.
I thought formulas were allowed in code, but I guess not. This code will run continuously until a stop is activated.

The sub is a lot longer than posted here. Just trying to save space here.

Try using "U" instead of "X" for an incremental movement. Eg. G0 U-.063 instead of X-.063.
