# Setting P variables from D or B variable

• Hi everyone,

I want to set P variable using D variables in INFORM for my DX200 controller. I am changing D variables from my computer and would like to use them for changing P variable. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

• Use the SETE instruction in ARITH. Depending on the format on the P variable the elements are 1 is S, 2 is L, 3 is U and so forth. If the P variable is XYZ, 1 is X, 2 is Y, 3 is Z and so forth.

## I know a thing or two, because I’ve seen a thing or two. Don't even ask about a third thing. I won't know it.

• Oh wow thank you so much ..it worked really fine.!!

Can we use this way for getting velocity from D variables also..?

• For velocities you can use an Integer or a Double.

MOVJ VJ=D000

MOVL V=D000

You have to take decimals into account. On a VJ there are two decimal places. On a V= there is 1. On a V= the controller uses mm/sec regardless of what you are using.

D000=1000

This would be the equivalent of MOVJ VJ=10.00 or a MOVL V=100.0 mm/sec.

• Thank you for this info i will try it !!

And last thing .. can we copy data from B variable to D variable using SET or is there some other things to be considered..?

• Yes, you can use the SET to copy the content’s box of a Byte into the content’s box of a Double. If you need to do addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division you can also use the SET with the EXPRESS tag to reduce the number of instructions.

• I tried to copy content of B000 to D000 using : SET D000 B000 but it came up with error: 2080 (Depress INSERT or MODIFY)

• You are simply trying to add an instruction and the cursor is not right above the END instruction. Press INSERT then ENTER.

• When you will add new instruction that aren't in the job content, press INSERT + ENTER.

When there are instruction in the job content and you will change sections of it, after change press MODIFY + ENTER.
