DSO-X 3054A - CommandExpert - Increment Filename

Hello everyone,

I am using the oscilloscope DSO-X 3054A.

I connect from my laptop to it using Command Expert (ComEx).

Using ComEx I am able to send commands and I am able to run a sequence.

What I am trying to do is save the waveforms I see on the scope as ASCIIxy data. I can save a single file, using ComEx. The file is saved on a USB pen which is inserted in the availabel slot in the oscilloscope.

However, I want to save _several_ files. The problem is that I cannot find a way to automatically change the name of the file (something like scope1, scope2, scope3 etc...would be fine) using a variable to increment.

On the other hand, if I press the "Save"  button directly on the oscilloscope this happens automatically.

NB: I am aware of the Increment option which is present on the scope. This option is indeed ON, and it works manually but not with remote control.

Is there a way to solve this directly from ComEx, or do I really have to resort to write a C program to do it?

(BTW: if somewhere there is such a program already written I would be happy to know where to find it!)

thanks for the help,
