E5062 Antique Engineer need Pointy headed efete intellectual

I'm missing the 871x Format IMPEDANCE MAGNITUDE for Z and Phase angle on my new instruments.  I also don't have a old 871X book around but, in the old, antique days, you could Hit MATH Display User Defined F4 and you got Z and phase on one display, the equivalent of a vector impedance meter.  I don't have that and the Smith Chart presentation is there but not exactly what I want.  These 5062 units have the 250 option and, being an antique, I need some (as Spiro said) pointy headed intellectual to write the code for me.  (I once programmed a simple program to do a Fibonnacci series and did 87000 lines of asterisks before the operator got back from his coffee break.  I could do a root canal, myself, easier that write what I need.)

Somewhere in the big, cold world of E5062 users, someone else musta used and missed this format and I sure could use such a display.

From Bacau Romania, the flower of Romanian Moldovia--where the sun flowers really are in bloom--comes this request for help.  Maybe I can get back to Dallas sooner if I can see what I want.
