Good day to all,

     I am currently working on a simple project to communicate with my e3633a power supply using a vb program. My problem is i can't read from the device. When i send command lines to set voltages and/or current values, it is working properly but when i send status and measurement commands like *idn? or meas:volt:dc? etc., it doesn't respond... but after i send another command, the error 410 (Query INTERRUPTED) beeps out from the power supply. I already used this program with other power supplies and it worked flawlessly. I also used hyper terminal to communicate with the said e3633a but the same problem still occurs. What could be the problem i am facing. Thanks.
