E5071B Docs Where? + SCPI S2P Question

I guess the most important thing: Does anyone have a PDF to the SCPI reference for the E5071B? I know it's legacy... sorry... (Agilent Technologies,E5071B,MY42301212,A.08.11)

 

I'm trying to get a .S2P file from a SCPI command but it always returns BLANK on two paramters (it works on the soft panel). 

 

:MMEM:STOR:SNP:TYPE:S2P 1,2
:MMEM:STOR:SNP:FORM DB
:MMEM:STOR:SNP:DATA "1and2.S2P"

 

But the results look like:

Regardless of line wrapping, you'll notice that 4 columns (S11 and S12) come out to be zero! That doesn't happen when we use the soft keys.

 

I did notice that running any of these (not all of these) will change what columns are output:

:CALC1:PAR1:DEF S11;
:CALC1:PAR2:DEF S22;
:CALC1:PAR3:DEF S12;
:CALC1:PAR4:DEF S21;

 

Could someone help me figure out what's going on?
