Cannot disable source power calibration during a remote control Cal All s

I Cannot disable source power calibration during a remote control ‘Cal All’ session for a 'Standard' measurement class.  It works fine if I perform a 'Cal All' session via the front panel using the exact same instrument settings.

I’ve tried many ways to disable the source power calibration option during a remote control ‘Cal All’ session with no success. I’ve talked with Dr. Joel and he suggests I consult the documentation, specifically:

     System – CalAll – MCLass – STATE….and then look up the associated property for “Include Power Calibration”.


I found the following command that may have an effect:

SENSe:CORRection:COLLect:GUIDed:PSENsor[:STATe] , [src]

I have already tried this command, even using the specific ‘Cal All’ channel number…no worky.  Please advise.

                 The “Abort Power Cal Sweep” command also does not appear to work in the ‘Cal All” session.

     Is there a way to programmatically query the PNA for a pass/fail status regarding the individual calibration sweeps within a ‘Cal All’ session?  I need to direct program flow based on the sweep outcome…if it fails then I need to inform the operator to retry or abort.  Currently, the user would have to monitor the PNA screen for pass/fail indications and interpret it correctly…this technique is proving to be inadequate.
