34792A Remote Range/Resolution

I have a Keysight 34972A Data Acquisition Switch Unit which I use to detect a current, I use a PC to control this 34972A remotely.


This current is in a size from around -5.0000 mA to 5.0000 mA.


I would like to receive the measuring in mA, with 4 decimal digits.

When I use the command "MEASure:CURRent:DC? (@121)" I receive the return value in A instead of mA.


What are the parameters I have to use for Range and Resolution to fix this? I've seen the manual, which specifies to use MIN,MAX,AUTO or DEF. Sadly I couldn't make it work.


Anyone knows how I can specify the format I'd like to get my return value in? When the display shows a current of -0.442 mA and I use the command "MEASure:CURRent:DC? (@121)", I get 4.42E-04 instead of what I'd like to see (0.442E-03).
