    Thank you! I have other motion instructions coded earlier in the program, so all the motion parameters are already defined. The only hang up now is even though I am using KSS 8.3, I am getting an error that $AXIS_ACT_MES is not declared. Is there a declaration line needed in the beginning in order to use this? In examples I have looked at others do not seem to need one. Thank you again for all your help.

    Thank you so much! I was trying to go through some of the manuals and wasn't getting much luck!

    And to clarify I can go ahead and use the variable AxPos1 right in my PTP code, such as PTP AxPos1?


    I have taken a few C-based programming classes, but am new to KRL. I am creating a program that at the end of every iteration of the for loop, it goes to a separate point (out of the way) where the HALT command will be called. The problem is that after every iteration of the for loop, the position is different. I was trying to think of a way for the program to define the robot's current position as a new point, so I can do one PTP to the out-of-the-way spot, and then another PTP to the program-defined point. I discovered the $AXIS_ACT_MES variable and was thinking I could use that, but I am unsure how to hard code a point that I can use $AXIS_ACT_MES with to define the point. Hopefully, this makes sense, any help would be appreciated! Also, if there would be a better way to do this, please let me know!
